At Schinoussa are located two remarkable monuments of Christianity worth admiring. At Chora is the Church of the Virgin Mary which hosts the miraculous image Virgin Mary Akathis while at Mesaria stands the impressive Church of the Annunciation, where on March 25th takes place in the courtyard a great feast with food and drink.

On your way to the port you can admire the cave Maniatis, also known as the Pirate Cave. According to tradition, the pirate slipped and fell into the cave finding tragic end after he stole treasures from Virgin Mary Akathis. Finally, in the southwestern part of the island stand the ruins of the Venetian fortification.
