Oinousses Maritime Museum is a true gem. It is housed in Pantelis Ant. Laimos mansion near the port. It was founded in 1965 and presents the long maritime history of Oinousses, through its collection of model ships, paintings, nautical instruments and books. A story that spans centuries since the time the sailing ships of Oinousses dominated the sea routes of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, until the transition to steamships, the two World Wars and the role of the merchant navy and the postwar transition to Liberty ships.

The most valuable part of the exhibition is the collection of model ships made by French prisoners of war, during the Napoleon wars. The museum collection also features weapons used by mariners during the 18th and 19th century and paintings by Aristeidis Glykas.

Byzantine Monastery - Holy Monastery of the Annunciation of the Theotokos

The monastery was built by the pious couple of Panagos and Katigo Patera. It was inaugurated on August 10, 1965 and is celebrated twice a year, on March 25 and August 15. Since its foundation, the monastery follows the old calendar and the standard one of Saint Savvas.

The nuns are engaged in various ministries, with iconography, gold embroidery of holy icons, as well as knitting and hiero-sewing for their needs.

It is worth mentioning that many of the church’s hagiographies were created by the hagiographer Fotis Kontoglou.

On the hills surrounding the monastery, the founders of the monastery have built two immense and overcrowded chapels, a large Byzantine cross 12 meters high and two shrines, one dedicated to the Prophet Elias and a second dedicated to the Annunciation of the Virgin and the Apostle Paul.

There are many summer festivals, when they celebrate the dozens of chapels scattered on the islands, which are visited by pilgrims in boats to honor the celebrated saints.

The last holiday of the summer is the Dormition of the Virgin at the Holy Monastery of Evangelismos on August 28 (old calendar), where the monastery, a spiritual refuge, but also an architectural jewel of the island, honors its patroness.
