“interesting but not made to feel welcome by the monk who took our money and followed us around”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

this monastery was included in a Highlights of Crete day tour and we were not aware we were visiting it, however it is a beautiful site with 3 or 4 different buildings, one church and a museum. the monk who took our money didnt seem to trust any of us and followed us everywhere .I didnt feel i gained any knowledge on the greek orthodox faith after this visit
