Panagia Drosiani

Panagia Drosiani

The church Panagia (Virgin) Drosiani is located between the Tragaia area and the village Moni. The monastery is dedicated to the Virgin of rain, since according to tradition; the faithful locals were trying to exorcise the problem of drought that plagued the island for many years.

The cluster of temples of Drosiani was built in the 6th century and is one of the most important early Christian churches. According to archaeologists it features the best preserved murals with the oldest one dating back to the 7th century and reaching up to the 14th century.
The most famous of these is a double play on the dome of the church showing Christ at an early age, almost without a mustache and then as an adult man.
