The monastery of Holy mother of Spiliotissa founded in the 16th century, and seems to have been built on the edge of a ravine, around from a beautiful environment, rich in green vegetation. It is located in the north of the island, at the village of Orthonies, near to a cave where Monaco Ioannikios Kopsidas found the icon of Holy mother of Madonna. For now, you can just comment out, for the reason that it is an old building and may collapse,
but with the initiative of the Bishop of Zakynthos is undergoing reconstruction. Each September 9th, the villagers organize a big festival, in honor of Holy mother.
