Kalymnos Insel Sehenswürdigkeiten

Kalymnos Insel Sehenswürdigkeiten


In den letzten Jahren hat sich die Insel Kalymnos allmählich zu einem Kletterziel entwickelt. Die Landschaft ist bergig und das charakteristische Merkmal von Kalymnos sind die vielen Höhlen. Die Berge an der Nordseite der Insel und die Nachbarinsel Telendos sind die beliebtesten Orte zum Klettern. Eine weitere interessante Sehenswürdigkeit in Kalymnos sind das Kloster von Agios Savvas und die mittelalterliche Burg von Chryssoheria. Besucher sollten auch eine Bootsfahrt vom Hafen von Myrties zur Insel Telendos, einem abgelegenen Ort mit FKK-Stränden, nicht verpassen.

The beautiful church of Agios Savvas is located on top of a hill, 2 km south of Pothia, so it offers an amazing view of the town and the port. It is made of stone in the shape of cross and has round domes.

Monastery of Agios Savvas

The Monastery of Agios Savvas is located on top of a hill above Pothia Town, the capital of Kalymnos. This lovely church is made of stone with red tiled roof and is dedicated to Agios Savvas, the patron saint of the island. Its location provides an excellent view of the town, the port, and the sea, while the beautiful monastery of Agioi Pantes is also located close by.

Saint Savvas the New was born in 1862 in Eastern Thrace with the name Vassilios. He took the name Savvas when he became a monk. During the last twenty years of his life, he lived in Kalymnos as a priest in the Monastery of Agioi Pantes (of All Saints). He was a great ascetic, iconographer and miracle-worker. He is one of the few recently recognized saints of the Orthodox Church.
