Panagia Odigitria of Kimolos

The magnificent and imposing Metropolitan Church of Panagia Odigitria was erected between 1867 and 1874 through the personal work of the people of the island of Kimolos who, without pay, worked zealously for seven years.

Among the numerous old and beautiful icons, the most cherished is the icon of Panagia Odigitria which dates to the Paleologan era (15th century) and possibly came from either Constantinople or Thessaloniki.

The artistic wealth of Panagia Odigitria Church is impressive and in order for a visitor to really appreciate it, one must devote ample time.

Panagia Odigitria is celebrated annually on November 21st for the feast of the Entrance of the Theotokos Into the Temple.
