Our Lady Askonitissa (from Askos) or Yatrissa (Woman Doctor)

The Askos Village is built on the plateau, which is formed between Mount Vertiskos and Lake Volvi. Its location offers a unique view of the Langadas plain, the lakes Volvi and Koroneia, as well as the ridges of Chortiatis.

In the Holy Church of Zoodochos Pigi in Askos, the visitor has the opportunity to worship the holy and miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary Askonitissa or Yatrissa. A magnificent icon with a history that is lost in the depths of the centuries, as it was constructed before the 8th century BC, while according to tradition it was created by the Evangelist Mark.

Finally, it is worth making a stop at the taverns of the village and taste the famous wine of the region.
