Agios Panteleimon in Kalymnos

Above Elies, after Panormos, lies Agios Panteleimon, a very serene monastery. Inside the monastery, it is unlikely quiet and the mountains around are covered with pine trees.

The monastery consists of several eye-catching churches. However, there is one that really stands out and it is the church that is located in a cave. The church has no door.

According to legend, it is said that they made three attempts to put a door in place, but every time the door disappeared. The reason is said to be that Agios Panteleimon, who is buried inside the church, wanted to see the sea and his mother's grave. The monastery is celebrated with a big party on July 26th and 27th each year.
