A beautiful contradiction - rustic and characterful exterior, shiney & perfectly polished treasures on the inside.Theres lots of nooks and crannies and a photo to be taken around every corner (if thats your thing). We spent an hour or so here, its not an enormous place, but theres plenty to explore. If you like to just sit and enjoy the... More

I love this monastery deeply, I consider it a second home and I try to dedicate any spare time I have to help out at the monastery. The monks and volunteers of the monastery are extremely nice and helpful. The monastery bundles bounds of history within its venetian walls and hides it so well to the average tourist. The church...

We visited the Monastery as part of an excursion from the cruise port. The view from the top of the monastery is pretty spectacular. Inside the ornate monastery you can gain insight into the Greek Orthodox religion. If you are lucky you may even see a monk or two going about their day trying to avoid busloads of gawking tourists.... More

This is a really lovely spot. The monastery is lovely and the grounds are also very pretty. Large free parking lot with easy access. Only downside is the indoor photo prohibition but at least we could take pictures of the actual buildings and the pretty gardens.

The Agia Triada monastery is definitely worth a visit if you are in the Akrotiri peninsula. for a couple of Euros you can enjoy the tranquil and beautiful monastery courtyards and church. Afterwards, visit the shop and sample the wine and olive oil made on the premises. (The wine is not fantastic, but the olive oil was good) The sign... More

Doing this visit, we had a perfect time of serenity. Even the children were under the charm of the beautiful monastery which is relatively well maintained. Enjoy the silence, the beautiful flower and the relaxing atmosphere of the place. Only one remark, the visit of the shop is not really needed except if you want to have a look to... More

Visited in early May, we had the whole place for ourselves. Nice compact monastery, a little out of the way, very peaceful and quiet. While there also visit the store, where the monastery sells some of their own products (particularly olive oil).
