Virgin Mary Panachrantos Church

In the 17th century, the French invaded Syros and brought Catholicism.  They built a Monastery and numerous churches on the island. Though The Church of The Virgin Mary was built in 1856 after they had left, it only went to show that the people had adopted the religion to fit themselves.

The Virgin Mary Panachrantos Church sits on the central hill in the town of Vari. It was inaugurated in 1973 and dedicated to the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary.
