Milos Island was declared officially by the Holy Synod as "Holy Island" in 2014, as it hosts the oldest monument of Christianity, the Catacombs. It has an Ecclesiastical museum and more than 140 churches and chapels. Some of the many wonderful religious sights worth visiting are: the church of Agia Paraskevi in Pollonia, the Catholic church of Panagia(Virgin Mary) of the Roses in Plaka, the church of Aghios Charalambos and the Catholic church of St. Nicolas in Adamas, the church of Profitis Ilias in Clima, the church of Panagia Tourliani in Tripiti, the church of Panagia Portiani in Zefyria and many others. The Ecclesiastical museum is located in Adamas in the church of Holy Trinity. There you can admire rare religious works by Greek artists and get to know the local Christian tradition. On Saints’ name day, traditional island feasts are organized to the churches, that are dedicated to Them, with singing, dancing and plenty of food. Ask and learn and if you are lucky, you may have the opportunity to attend in such a celebration!
