Virgin Mary Kanala

The church of the Virgin Mary known as Panagia Kanala is the most famous church in Kythnos. It was built in 1869 on the site of a pre-existing church after the miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary was found in the Serifos - Kythnos strait or 'canal' (hence the name Kanala). Painted in 1575 by the priest Emmanuel Skordilis, the icon is a work of the Cretan School. The church celebrates with a big festival and a re-enactment of the finding of the icon on August 15.
