The Virgin Mary of Pantohara

Perhaps he had never visited Sikinos, but Odysseus Elytis linked his name with this small Aegean Sea island. Furthermore,the little church above Kastro was built in his honour after his death, after he himself had requested this before dying. It is dedicated to the Virgin Mary of Pantohara and was founded in 2001. With its view of the sea and the refreshing breeze that always blows, it reminds us of the poet's lines: But where did you wander. All day long in the hard reverie of stone and sea? An eagle-bearing wind stripped the hills. Stripped your longing to the bone. -and more specifically- The Virgin Holy held the sea in her embrace. Cradling Sikinos isle and Amorgos and her other children.
