Holy Monastery of Great Lady of «Pende Ospiton»

Once an important center for liturgical life and the study of religious chanting, the monastery was founded in 1586 by the monks Dionysios and Neilos, on the south side of Samos, and was dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. During the Ottoman Occupation it contributed to the secret schooling in the Greek language, and during the revolution of 1821 became a base for local combatants.
