This Monastery has the most beautiful gilded interior it is almost blinding. The icons that line the walls are some of the most gorgeous I have seen. The faces are delicately painted. They have a serenity about them. The rose garden was warm and sunny...More

Simply, the best monastery in Crete. An architectural miracle in the midland of Akrotiri peninsula. A drawing like no other. No monks there! Unexpected. A must visit...
