Virgin Mary of the Mountains

The little church of the Virgin Mary Axinon is located 4.6 km from Chora, on the island's northern road. Here, the road branches out, passing Saint Mamas from the east and continuing northward, where it reunites with the main northern road. 300 m north, the road splits in three directions (all dirt roads). The first path leads to Saint Irene (in the northern part of the island). After 700 m it passes the small church of the Archangel Michael, and after 1000 m, the church of Christ. The path that began at the Cross (Stavros) and ran through the northern part of Vigla (the highest peak on the island, at 581 m) ends here. After the church of Christ the road continues for 700 m, then splits again. The left branch leads to the Virgin Mary of the Mountains (Panagia ton Vounon, in 500 m), and the right one to Saint Irene and the beautiful beach of Livoskopos. The road ends 300 m after the Virgin Mary of the Mountains. From this spot, the trek to the top of Vigla will take 25 minutes.
