The chapel of Prophet Elias dominates at the highest point of the island, at the homonymous peak of the central mountain range of Kalymnos and at an altitude of about 785 meters. The church is one-roomed and arched. The panoramic view from the point is magnificent, as you can observe the islands around you and admire the beauty of nature.
If you head to the chapel in the afternoon, it will surely enslave you with its warm colors as it sinks into the sea.
Feast Date: 20 July

There are two paths you can follow:
Of course, before you start hiking, you will need to consult a local on the island to inform you about the state of the trails.
