This monastery is a beautiful secluded retreat among the fields of Akrotiri. It is extremely well maintained, with a tiny yet interesting museum and a nice garden. It is a truly serene place that is particularly good to visit soon after arrival from some hectic megapolis. Very much worth a stop while exploring Akrotiri on the way from Venizelos graves... More

A beautiful, tranquil place. This monastery is just so lovely, picturesque and peaceful. The flowers were absolutely wonderful when we visited in early May - but any time of year is good here. The main church is a sight to behold (no photography here though, and this should be respected - although you may take pictures anywhere else). It is... More

A lovely monastery with stunning views and a church interior with an awe inspiring fresco of Jesus, coming from someone who is not in the slightest bit religious, but with an interest in monasteries. Some of the best olive oil from Crete can be bought here along with wine and olive oil soap which the monks have been making for... More

I'm not religoius, but this was a lovely spot to visit especially if you have a couple of hours to kill before a flight. Lots of photo opportunities.

After geting several disappointments visiting several monasteries, this was definitely one of the best. Interesting exhibitions and beautiful buildings. Nearby, beautiful surroundings with more sacred sites to visit.

We set off in our hire car for this historical landmark in the cool of the late afternoon having read about it in the touristy brochures. Driving through the crete countryside is always a pleasure as the views from the mountains are stunning. At 2.50 euro per person to visit the monastery it is worth the effort of getting there....

Build in 1631. The bell-tower and the big entrance in 1864. One of the biggest and most important monastery in crete. In the 1800th here was a theological insttute and a priest-college. Go inside. It is so beautiful and peaceful.

Our stop at the Monastery was a pleasant surprise during our stay in Chania. We were lucky enough to visit the Monastery without tour buses or crowds of people. The location is stunning and like stepping back into time. The courtyard and gardens surrounding the church are beautiful, and the church itself (while small) is impressively decorated and maintained. The... More

Only a short drive outside of Chania, this monastery is really worth visiting. If you only visit one monastery on Crete, I would say this should be the one. Setting and atmosphere are truly magnificent. We were lucky to enjoy it almost to ourselves by visiting early in the day. I am sure much of the magic would be lost... More
