Being of the Greek Orthodox faith, though slightly more relaxed about all things religion, I nonetheless found visiting the Monastery a moving experience.

The church itself is steeped in history, 18th Century or so, and simply incredible. The detail and depth is mesmerising. The icon itself of the Archangel Michael is impressive.

One can not help be moved by this site. Enjoy it, and be sure to put this attraction on your list of things to do when visiting the Dodecanese Islands.

Beautiful monastery. Scarves are provided upon arrival so that you can cover legs and shoulders. We arrived here by boat from Mandraki port (Rhodes). Although there was only an hour allocated to this side of the island, we managed to see a lot of the area with it's cafes and swimming.

For the ones who travel to Rhodes island I would recommend a trip to the Symi island, to visit Panormitis. But I have to tell you that you must move fast, because there is only one hour dedicated to this place usually and I would hardly recommend to the travel agencies to give more time for this visit, because it really deserves.
It's a monastic complex there, dedicated to Archangel Michael, Symi's patron saint, the protector of sailors. The monastery has also two museums: one of ecclesiastical art and one of folk art with very beautiful pieces exposed.

We went to this place as part of a boat trip to symi. I enjoyed the whole trip. The monastery was beautiful. We went inside and there were beautiful paintings on the wall. A few people had brooms but i do not know the significance.
Does anybody know?
