The chapel of Agios Ioannis Theologos is situated near the settlement of Kapsali, 2.5 km south of Kythera.
The chapel was built in 1592, on a steep slope, thus it is called Agios Ioannis Gremon (: St John of the crevices).

The cave's interior is separated into numerous chambers. In the chamber where the chapel is one can admire a small lake with beautifully coloured water. The walls ...
The monastery Myrtidion is situated near the village of Kalokerines, 12 km west of the island's capital. It is built among the myrtles, near the beach, overlooking the sea.
According to tradition, the miraculous icon of Virgin Mary was found here by a shepherd, guided by a vision, in the 14th century. Although the shepherd took the icon to his home, the next day, the icon had disappeared only to be found again in the same place, a fact which was interpreted as Virgin Mary's wish for ...
