  • If you love old monasteries, mus and! It is a long abandoned monastery. Get some still quite good. This place has a special atmosphere. (Mystic - romantic). Driving up to the monastery "Moni Gouvernetou" drive on the Akrotiri peninsula. There, you can park and then takes the route to the "Moni Katholiko", passed on the goat huts, at the bear's den and a rock Church. Away is something arduous, especially the way back. It's pretty steep upward. Sturdy footwear is recommended. Down the beach we have unfortunately no longer dared to the climbing. However, I am glad to have been there!

  • Amazing ruins and a 1 hour hike down to the sea where you can dive from rocks into the water.
  • A place where you can find total silence with only the sounds of nature

  • The oldest monastery on Crete, now abandoned. You can only walk on a paved trail, sometimes quite steep for 25-30 minutes. With trails enjoys beautiful views of the sea

  • Nice place, warm hiking but very worth it.
