They are many legends around this beautiful sea-chapel. One of them has it that the miraculous icon of Saint Isidore, now kept in the church, was caught in the net of a one-handed fisherman. From her rescue from the sea, the icon was so glad that she promised to fulfill the fisherman's wish. He wanted to have a second hand, which she made grow promptly. To show his gratitude, he built the beautiful chapel of Saint Isidore in the place he luckily caught the icon.
Today, this place is known as a romantic spot where many couples celebrate their wedding. If you are exploring Leros by bike, a visit of the Chapel of St. Isidore is worth it.
