Description

The legend says that in 890 several Greeks were captured by a horrible storm on the rock eastwards the Phiolent Cape. Feeling inevitable death, the miserable people started to pray George the Winner asking for protection. A miracle occurred: the storm was immediately over and the image of St. George appeared on the rock. Since then the rock with cross signs salvation due to the history and unearthly scenery.
