Milos Declared as "Holy Island" Postponed for Fall

Milos, one of the most beautiful islands of Greece, with its astonishing catacombs, was declared by former Minister, Prokopis Pavlopoulos and the head of the Church as a “holy island” in 2009. On the 18th and 19th of June this year, the island was supposed to have taken its name officially, but the recent accident involving the bishop and the current political situation has postponed the event for next fall. However, thousands of people travel to Milos each year, not just for a vacation, but also in order to pray inside the catacombs as they believe it is in fact, a holy island.
