A unique church with no roof

It was founded in 1,416 A.C. by some monks who managed to escape the Turkish invasion in Agios Efstratios island.

Limnos island has unique beauties and many sites to visit.
One of them is the unique chapel of Panagia Kakaviotissa. It is the only chapel in Greece and perhaps in the whole world that has no roof, but it is protected by a rock above it.

Εντολήν καινήν σας δίδω, Να αγαπάτε αλλήλους∙ καθώς εγώ σας ηγάπησα, και σεις να αγαπάτε αλλήλους. Εκ τούτου θέλουσι γνωρίσει πάντες ότι είσθε μαθηταί μου, εάν έχητε αγάπην προς αλλήλους. (Ιωάννης, ιγ΄:34--35).---Një porosi të re ju le juve: Të doni njëri-tjetrin, siç ju desha unë dhe ju të doni njëri-tjetrin. Prej kësaj do t'ju njohin ju të gjithë se jeni nxënësit e mi, në qoftë se keni dashuri për njëri-tjetrin" Joani 13,34-35.
