This article is confusing. What is it about? Is the article about a saint, an icon, travel itinery, church, festival. etc? It is not encyclopedic! It appears to be mainly an article about an icon. Thus, it should be edited as an icon article and the parts about the church should be in a separate article, and the travel information omitted and left to the external travel links.

:This article is probably confusing you because you are looking at it through the eyes of an Editor only ...I think if you spend tooo much time in here you end up 'boxing' information too much. Everyone who knows this place/church/icon know its one and the same thing - its INTERWOVEN. It HAS to be addressed as one article ... you cant talk about the icon without talking about the church history ... they are so closely linked even to this very day ...second, IMO its not a travel guide. If you go to the 'travel guide' links they have descriptions about the church/icon history (which are sources of information). There is nothing wrong with describing the road that leads up to the church, it makes the article more interesting and I have AN Encyclopedia at home and when you go to articles on places they have descriptive information ...there does not seem to be anything wrong with that? This is all part of the information about that place and that icon. If you hate it ...delete it ... dont be so critical about something though that people have volunteered their time and effort into preparing. -- [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 13:14, February 24, 2008 (PST)

This article is confusing. What is it about? Is the article about a saint, an icon, travel itinery, church, festival. etc? It is not encyclopedic! It appears to be mainly an article about an icon. Thus, it should be edited as an icon article and the parts about the church should be in a separate article, and the travel information omitted and left to the external travel links.
