Really enjoyed out 40 minute stop here - having been briefly back in the heat of July we were keen to return for a cooler Easter trip. The home made olive oil and amazing Balsamic vinegar are a must buy if you like these products as the tastes are sensational and we bought home a lot of each for our... More

Visited this monastery during the day and was very much taken by its location. Lovely views of the White Mountains of Crete. Toured around the monastery right before Easter. The church was all decorated for the celebration. There is also a gift shop and museum on the premise. The gift shop sells products that the monastery produces. You are able... More

This is a fascinating spot and we visited on Easter Sunday. It was so lovely in the grounds with all the plants blooming. I felt like I was back in time. Be sure and bring a sweater or shirt to cover shoulders and respect the monk's space. Also no photos inside so the beauty will just have to remain inside... More

I visited around easter and the priest was very friendly and it was peaceful. If you have the opportunity spend some time there to let the place sink in.

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.

Thank SpikeVancouver
