The Approach to Kounistra Monastery, Skiathos (Original)


Prints available…. One of a series of four paintings of this small monastery. Kounistra is situated high above Aselinos Beach on a thickly wooded hillside. It was erected in the 17th century where an icon of the Virgin Mary was found. This is the patron saint of the island and on the 20th of November each year the islanders attend an all night celebration here. Schools close, shops and businesses shut. At the monastery bonfires are lit and there is wine and food; this is the island’s biggest holiday. On these occasions it is the tradition to make the five mile pilgrimage from the town over the mountains to the monastery on foot, those who can’t are ferried by bus. At other times a favourite place to baptised children.
