Agia Irini is one of the stops on the Rethymno City Tour open top bus. It is a restored nunnery with a community of resident nuns. An English speaking nun showed me around and told me about the icon of St Irini in the church which has allegedly helped many women wanting to have a child. There is a gift shop with very good quality merchandise made by the nuns. After showing me round the nun left me to sit quietly and rest and to take photos.
I found this place to be very spiritual and peaceful with lovely views across the hills and towards the coast.
