The ruined monastery of Our Lady 'Skopiotissa', built at the top of mountain Skopos. According to archaeologists, it was build around 1400 A.D. on the ruins of the ancient temple of goddess Artemis.
At the top of the Skopos mount, at the back of the town of Argasi, there is a small monastery castled build in honour of the Holy Mother in the XV century.
From this monastery, surrounded by nature, it is possible to view the entire island, an unforgettable landscape that the Venetians appreciated and to which they gave the name of Belvedere. It was built on the ruins of the ancient temple of Artemis in Byzantine style; the cross plant and the interiors rich of frescos render the church very characteristic.
