This is a wonderful little church, and although there are a lot of wonderful little churches in Greece, this one has an original El Greco. What a wonderful surprise. Well worth the visit!

Friday 13th July and we were out and about exploring and sightseeing in Ermoupolis, and we visited this Church. We nearly walked passed this Church as was not too clear what the building was, we walked up some steps and entered the Church through the gated entrance. The Church is situated on Stamatiou Proiou, which is a couple streets back from the Port. We were not prepared for the magnificent sight that greated us as we entered this Church, it was stunning There were such eyecatching featutres, the extremely ornate pulpit, green marble pillars supporting the ceiling with impressive chandeliers hanging from it. The altar was absolutely amazing with its glorious icons and some many small religious paintings above, it dominated the entire back of the Church. There were incredible icons and religious images around the Church, including the famous icon painted by El Grecco - the Dormition of the Virgin Mary. We did notice that the Church was also know as the Church of Dormition, perhaps as result of the icon, which we did not know the meaning of Dormition, so after our visit we checked the term out. We discovered it meant in the Orthodox Church, the passing of the Virgin Mary from earthly life. The feast, in honour of the Dormition, is celebrated on 15 August, this corresponds to the Assumption in the Western Church. Well worth spending some time walking around this amazing sacred place.

The church of ""koimhshs the Panagias ten Psarianwn "" was built from people of Creta moved in Syros .Probably somebody brought the icon that Domenico Theotokopoulos paint without knowing how precious was.Very recently a connoisseur who visited the church discover the icon and its Importance.He cleaned and restaured the icon and from now on we can admire this work of art .The name is not so clear but when you magnify the foto you can see the name in black colour.BUT another thing you admire is father KONSTANTINOS always ready to give you any detail and answer concerning the church.Happy to meet him this very passionated person "

We were amazed not only by El Greco`s icon but also by experiencing such a truly unique masterpiece as a whole! A sacred place with a long history. A piece of the important contribution of Psara to the Greek Nation. We are grateful to Father Constantinos for his detailed presentation of the church. This is the No.1 place to visit in Syros.

The church is beautiful as all the churches were saw in Syros. The highlight though is the painting of El Greco. It is a small painting at the entrance of the church to your right.
