Panagia Portaitissa church

  Panagia Portaitissa makes up the religious centre of the island with the largest amount of homage. It began being built in 1762 by the blind Osios Anthimos from Cephalonia, who before building Panagia Portaitissa, had built the monasteries of Zoodochou Pigis at Sikinos and Saint George at Castelorizo. The construction of the church lasted nine years during which according to tradition, many miracles occurred.
  It is dedicated to Panagia Portaitissa of the Iviron monastery, a copy of whose icon Osios Anthimos brought to Astypalea. On the 15th August when the celebration of Portatissa is held, there is a grand festival with violins and utes.
This text (extract) is cited November 2003 from the Municipality of Astypalea tourist pamphlet (1999).
