Churches @ Ios Island


It is said that in Ios there are 365 churches and chapels to match the number of days in a year.
It’s worth exploring as many as you can to soak up the atmosphere and beautiful scenery.


It is worth visiting the churches Panagia Gremiotissa, Panagia Katholiki, St. John, St. Aikaterini, St. Nicholas, Chrisopigi, Evangelismos, St. Nicholas at the Castle, Faneromeni, St. Irene, and many more!

In Ios a part of the monastery of Panagia Chozoviotissa was operating and that was referred in a document of 1579 AD, In Ios also a Catholic temple of the Crispi dynasty was operating, but its internal is in a bad condition. In Paleokastro there is the Virgin Mary of Paleokastritsa and the walls of a Byzantine fort. In the top of the hill of Chora lies the temple of the Assumption very close to the remains of the Venetian castle.
