Daskalio - little church of Zoodochou Pigi

Daskalio- the little church of Zoodochou Pigi (Life Giving Spring): It is a small church dating back from the year 1688 and is located on “Daskalio”, a tiny island hidden behind the island Romvi. It is said that during the period of the Turkish rule, there was a “secret school” – “kryfo scholeio” on the island. In that "secret school", priests   tried to teach children in secret their language and their history in order to maintain their heritage. Today Daskalio remains untouched by humans, despite the many visitors who undertake a pilgrimage to the chapel, or just go to the island for a swim.
