Dormition of the Virgin at Psara
 

This was built in the 16th century and played an important role in the revolution of 1822, when it was destroyed by the Turks. It was restored by the monk Athanasios in 1880-90. The last monk died in 1983. Every year on August 1, the residents of Psara bring the icon of the Kimisis to the town, and conduct prayers in the homes. After vesper services for the feast day of the Savior (Oiu Sotiros) on August 5, the icon is returned to the monastery.
