Church Of The Assumption

One of the most interesting places to visit on the Island of Hydra is the Cathedral Museum or the Ecclesiastic Museum, which is located above the port. The Ecclesiastical Museum is housed in the Church Of The Assumption, which is also the Cathedral of Hydra. This cathedral was originally built in 1648 and was reconstructed in 1774. For a small period, it also operated as a monastery. The Ecclesiastical Museum contains rare Byzantine icons, clerk relics and holy gospels.
