Visited here on a P&O cruise tour ( very expensive tour at £55/person including guided walk of chania old town)
It’s not too far from the harbour, a lot of people seem to come via taxi.
You don’t need a guided tour unless you really want to study all the history etc, but if like us you just want to see an old monastery you don’t need the tour. It’s very pretty, has a wine cellar with olive oil tastings if you want to do that.
To be honest I think you’d be pushed to spend more than 45 minutes here. I’m not sure if there’s a cafe, I didn’t see one.
There was a service going on when we were here which made it a bit more interesting (on a Sunday) .

This rose colored monastery is so beautiful ❤️. I fell in love with this 700 year old building. I payed taxi driver $70 euros to take me there. The driver gave me 1/2 hour to tour the place was just enough time to take great pictures

We came here to visit this and another monastery, we were not disappointed. The church inside is very pretty built in Byzantine architecture. You can sample some olive oil and wine which is still produced by the monks. Well worth a visit.

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 small museum gave good insight into the history and importance of the Monastery. We spent more time here than we anticipated strolling through the courtyard and enjoying the scenery. We bought some very good olive oil, and wish we could have tasted the wines before buying.

A random find on the way from Stavros beach to Marathi beach.

A beautiful quiet reflective place - lovely building and quiet spaces. Tranquil gardens.

A small museum and shop within the grounds and a large shop with olive oil etc just outside.

Highly recommended

One of the most impressive 17th c. monasteries in Greece. The landscape is picturesque and the architecture of the monastery is scenic, actually this monument is notable for its unique artistic combination of the Byzantine tradition with the Italian mannerism.

We were on our way to Aptera, but thought we'd stop to visit this monastery and maybe even sample the wine. My husband had never been inside a Greek Orthodox church so he learned a lot wandering the lovely grounds of this monastery. I stood over 10 minutes though to sample the wine while the woman was prepared for a tour group and made me wait rather than give me a sip. I stood there out of principal so it put a bit of a damper on our experience.

We had a local guide showing us around Chania and this turned out to be our favorite stop. Very picturesque and tranquil. We visited on a Sunday morning during service which really enhanced the experience (and I am not religious). Our guide said it was fine to stand in the door and watch the service for a bit and they also "broadcast" the service out into the courtyard. You need to stop here if you are in Chania, especially of you are a photography buff.

This monastery is one among few on Crete that I keep returning to. Besides its historical, architectural, and religious importance, it's highly photogenic, camera friendly... These colours are even more intense and beautiful when you're standing in front of it.

This is a very nice monastery, we love the drive up to it and also the history that oozes out of every brick, on one such brick a German soldier inscribed his name date. Its a lovely quiet place, there is a shop that sells wine the monks make and also soaps and olive oil,

I have ticked bathroom felicities but I must say theses are very basic.
