Ένα από τα μεγαλύτερα προσκυνήματα στον Ελλαδικό χώρο είναι η Παναγία Βρεφοκρατούσα στην Αγιάσο της Λέσβου.
Δυστυχώς,η φωτογράφιση απαγορεύεται αυστηρώς εντός και εκτός του Ι.Ναού.
Επιπλέον η μοναδική είσοδος στον προαύλιο χώρο από τις υψηλές στεγασμένες στοές της αγοράς και η πυκνή πέριξ δόμηση καθιστούν την οπτική επαφή με αυτόν αρκετά δύσκολη και περιορισμένη.

One of the largest pilgrimages in Greece is the Virgin Mary the suckling holding at Agiasos of Lesvos.
Unfortunately, photography is strictly forbidden inside and outside the Holy Temple.
In addition, the unique entrance to the courtyard from the high,covered galleries of the market and the close surrounding buildings make the visual contact with it quite difficult and limited.

Agiassos is a colorful small town, in the heart of mount Olympus (female) dense forest at the Lesvos island,north Aegean,Hellas (Greece).
Although not a coastal settlement,attracts important tourism for three reasons:
1st: the rare, for such a large extent residential coherence, beauty and picturesque. Traditional architecture in popular houses (stone with the dark characteristic stone of the island) but also with multicolored coatings, in individual impressively preserved buildings with clear neoclassical .That is why the settlement as a whole has been declared traditional by the Ministry of Culture.
2nd: the wonderful products of the folk artisans in ceramics, wood carving and small furniture and
3rd: principally,the Holy Church of Our Baby-holding Lady with the homonymous miracle-working icon which gathers throughout the year but mainly at the great festival of August 15th thousands of believers from all over the world to worship her grace.
