Panagia Phaneromene (Gr. Revealed)


  • The Chapel of Panagia Pheneromeni (Chalkidiki,Greece) - a white washed chapel with a tile roof part of the dependency of the Flamouri Monastery. It is built on the shore of a beach on the road leading to Nea Skioni. The chapel houses some amazing frescoes that date back to the 16th century.
  • The church of the Blessed Virgin Phaneromeni (Corfu island, Greece)
On a little square on the corner of Nickiphorou Theotoki street stands this little church dedicated to the Phaneromeni. It was founded in 1689 and was, for a long time, the parish church for the Community of Greeks from Epiros. This church is also commonly called the 'Virgin of Strangers' (Panagia ton Xenon).
  • Phaneromeni Church (Nicosia, Cyprus) - This used to be the largest church in Nicosia. The church was built in 1872 and there is a large marble mausoleum to the east of the church containing the relics of Bishops and priests executed by the Turks in 1821.

List of monasteries

  • Phaneromeni monastery, Aigina (Greece)
The monastery of Phaneromeni lies just behind the exit from the town of Aigina, to the south-east, on the road to Agia Marina bay called Phaneromeni. On the site, the church is a three-aisled basilica, of which the apses are still clearly recognisable. The constructions began sometime in the 13th century, which remained unfinished. The Bishop of Aigina, in the 19th century, lived near this monastery and there remain two underground chapels that can be reached from his garden to a small cave. The icon of Phaneromene is supposed to have been found during the construction of the church in the 13th century in this cave. Today, this estate, its surrounds and the monastery of Phaneromeni belong to the monastery of Chrysoleontissa, which is a little further inland.
  • Phaneromeni monastery, Ambram (Naxos island, Greece)
Situated close to the bay of Ambram beach, this is a 17th century monastery with very rare icons.
  • Phaneromeni monastery, Anavriti (Peloponnese, Greece)
This monastery is an antique religious construction which is also built within a cave. It is very appealing to tourist due to its structural characteristics and its unique location.
