Worth a visit, stones throw from airport

Beautiful place. Very close to airport. Definitely worth a short detour before dropping hire car back to airport.

Maybe it is not a place visited by most of the tourists but I found this monastry full of beauty. It was built in the sixteenth century in the byzantine style and its museum has very interesting collections to see. I stayed in this monastry until the sunset. Waw the colors of the sun on the ancient walls were amazing.... More

This monastery, deeply associated with the resistance to the Ottoman rule, is found amid the vines and olive groves that it owns. The church has magnificent icons and is very peaceful. Below a new area has been opened - a supplementary museum and shop, with rather impressive gifts. Just to come here and walk around is a treat. We always... More

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.
