A little to the northwest of ''Pythagorion'' on the island of Samos inside a big cave you will find the Holy '''Monastery of Panagia Spilianis''' (the Cave of the Virgin Mary) devoted to the presentation of the Virgin Mary. Inside this cave there is a church with a very faded marble [[icon]] of the Virgin Mary ('''the Spiliotisa''') and also Holy Water. This monastery is also known as '''Kaliarmenissa''' and is a dependency of the Hozeviotissa monastery of Amorgos.
