Today, September 24, is the Feast Day of Panagia Myrtidiotissa with special importance for Kytherians…
The legend of the Virgin says it all started from a bush that was seen burning in Loggos. Approaching to extinguish the fire, they saw that only one tree was burnt and the icon of Virgin was in its roots. They brought it to the village church but the next day the icon was missing.
