A picturesque church without the need for a roof in Lemnos island

The chapel of Panagia Kakaviotissa located in Lemnos island, Greece, was founded in 1,416 A.C. by monks who managed to escape the Ottoman invasion in Agios Efstratios island. Nested inside a rock cavity on the top of Kakavos Mountain at an altitude of 260 meters, the church has no need for a roof. The picturesque chapel that is accessed via a path leading to the top of Mount Kakavos, offers an impressive view to the sea.
