Kalamata - Cathedral of Presentation of Mary Cathedral of Presentation of Mary
In the historical centre and right underneath the Frankish castle, on the square with the same name, you will find the impressive church of Ipapanti (Presentation of Virgin Mary). It is a characteristic building of the city, founded on 25 January 1860 and in the temple you can see the miraculous picture of Presentation of Mary, patron of the city and of the whole Messinia prefecture. According to tradition the picture was found in a stable, after a vision of a stable boy. The most weird thing is that the picture was burnt from behind but the picture was intact. From 1889 and every year the procession of the image is performed.
