In the most famous monastery of Sifnos, the miraculous icon of Panagia of Chrissopigi is kept. Its celebration, at the Ascension Day, is one of the most important events in Sifnos, starting the previous day in the afternoon, when the miraculous icon of the Life Giving Spring leaves "panigiras" (the one that is responsible of organizing the feast and he/she has kept the miraculous icon safe the latest year) house, and is driven by the clergy and the faithfuls in the church of Saint George, at Kamares. After the prayer there, "panigiras" with the miraculous icon and the priests board the ferry, which each such day adds the sacred rock of Chrysopigi in its route. The Coast Guard band honors the celebration of Panagia and the great festal evening-player follows right after.
