Panormitis Monastery by Tom Gomez

Located on the south end of the beautiful Greek Island of Symi is the Monastery dedicated to the Archangel Michael of Panormitis.

Situated on the sea front of the tiny village of Panormitis, the monastery is a large 18th-century Venetian styled building with the highest baroque bell tower in the world. The facade of the main structure is white and it stretches along the coast on either side of the main gateway. In excellent condition, the Italians constructed these two rows of buildings after World War II. These buildings now contain holiday flats that can be rented by tourists visiting the monastery and also contain a bakery among other things.

Symi is a member of the Dodecanese group of Greek islands and lies 24 nautical miles to the north east of the Island of Rhodes.
