Dormition of Virgin Mary at Perachori

The church of the Dormition of Virgin Mary at Perachori is located at the highest point of the village, and it ends where the forest begins. If you find yourself at this village of Ithaca, the only one in the south of the island, you will hear the locals refer to the church as “Panagia” (Virgin Mary). Its tall belfry is illuminated at night, making it visible from far away.

The church of the Dormition of Virgin Mary at Perachori celebrates on 15th of August, but it also functions during the Holy Week and at Easter. In the church finds itself, as well, the graveyard of the village.

Right above the church of the Dormition of Virgin Mary at Perachori starts the path for Palaiochora, the medieval settlement of Ithaca.
