Religious Monuments

An important destination for religious tourism for thousands of Orthodox visitors, Lesbos boasts 15 monasteries, with four of them being the most visited due to the miracles associated with them. These include the Monastery of Saints Raphael, Nikolaos, and Irini, the Monastery of Taxiarches at Mantamados and the Monastery of Leimon and Aghios Ignatios. Additionally, numerous churches and picturesque chapels can be found amidst lush, unparalleled landscapes or hidden in rocky caves by the sea. It is imperative to maintain these places in order to preserve the island’s image as a top pilgrimage site, thus increasing the influx of religious tourism to the island.
