Tour description provided by Viator

Our tour of Kythira begins at the monastery of Our Lady Myrtidiotissa. The monastery is located to the west of Kythira, at the end of a wonderful journey that has a rich alternation between wild cliffs and green vegetation. Our tour will take in the grand monastery with its imposing steeple built of porous stone, which stands 25 metres high. Inside the monastery, you will see the 10 marble columns that support the roof of the church, which were found intact 200m away from the church during the period that it was being built, the Tourkalas (Turkish woman’s) wax candles, whose child was saved by the Virgin Mary, and most importantly the miraculous gold icon of Panagia Myrtidiotissa (the Virgin Mary). We will also have a chance to visit the small museum at the Monastery before returning to the coach.
