Panagia Spiliani Monastery

A short distance from the city of Pythagoreion, atop a cliff with wonderful views of the surrounding area and coast, lies the Panagia Spiliani Monastery. As if the views and the quaint monastery weren't enough to lure you up, visitors can descend into a small cave, at the bottom of which there is a tiny underground chapel.

Do & See

Samos is home to a wealth of beautiful beaches, both secluded and lively, but always surrounded by breathtaking scenery. The island's other assets include interesting museums, temples and castles, as well as the Cave of Pythagoras, where the ancient philosopher once resided and taught, and the marvel of ancient engineering that is the Tunnel of Eupalinos.
