One of the most historical monasteries in Crete is Arkadi. There, you can feel the passion of Cretan people for freedom and their self sacrifice.
In addition, the monastery has great architecture and is situated in a beautiful landscape .
It makes an excellent one day excursion together with surrounding places.
This place is of personal importance because one of my ansestors fought and was killed there during Cretan revolution in 1866.
