Holy Church of Assumption of Virgin Mary (Koimisi)

El GrecoThe three-aisled basilica is chronologically the second church of Syros (1828 - 29). Outside it has two terraces with arcades while the interior features excellent decoration with figures of saints and rosettes, crosses and stars. The temple is marble while the dome, the pulpit and the bishop's throne is wood, like the roof of the church.

Here you will find the icon of the Assumption of Virgin Mary, one of the first works by El Greco. The icon is situated in the church since the 19th century, but only twenty years ago was revealed that it is authentic, youthful work of the great painter.
