the icon of the Virgin of the Caves (Samos)

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.
