We made the short diversion to the Akrotiri Peninsula on our drive to Chania.

We enjoyed this early 17th century monastery very much. The church and cloisters were nice, but the museum was where we spent most of our time. It has a collection of vestments, crosses, and other religious art; along with a collection of rare books and icons preserved during the centuries of Ottoman occupation.

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.

There are several monasteries in Crete (we visited 5 of them) and while this isn't the most majestic, it is still worth the stop. Each monastery has it's own charm and history that helps one to understand the historical value of such a place. History is our "thing" so we enjoyed the visit.

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.

One of the larger, once very wealthy monasteries in Crete. Pleasant grounds with great views across the surrounding area. Can also visit the cellar to sample olive oils, wine & raki free of charge.

It's not the most central f places, but from Chania a short trip with nice views of the bay as well. The monastery is impressive, well enough preserved, interesting complex of buildings and they found their way into this century with a commercial wine tasting venue and shop, which makes sense.

There are several Monasteries close to each other on the Akrotiri Peninsul. The first one we found was the Agia Triada, Holy Trinity Monastery. The beautiful beach Seitan Limania is a few km away as well. Open from sunrise to sunset. It's 2 Euros to get in, kids under 12 are free.

There are a lot of cats roaming around. It is very picturesque with old buildings and some green plants growing. There is a small, beautiful church there. There is a museum with antiques and wine and oil for sale outside. There is a WC here. Tour buses come here.

This site is well with a visit if you are in the Chania area. Wonderfully peaceful, lots of interesting corners to photograph and cats wandering around. Nice place away from the hustle and bustle
