  • 30 minutes from Chania, we were charmed by this lovely welcoming monastery, full of charm. The garden is well maintained and give instead of gorgeous color, a real oasis! The Interior of the Chapel is also sumptuous, we stand speechless before the Golden decorations and the ceiling. The tour ends with a visit to the shop, or you can taste wines and other products made by the monastery.

  • Small site to the gap, much less touristy than Phaistos but charming. To go, he must bring a good book/guide, because I saw no explanation on the site... You can also enter the small church present on-site.

  • Near Festos in the South-central part of Crete are the ruins of the Minoan Villa or Palace of Agia Triada. The size is much smaller than the nearby Festos, but full of charm and well worth a visit. Today experts are not able to answer what was the purpose of this structure, as it was close to a large Palace in Festos. Most found the artifacts here is in the Museum at Heraklion. Here found a stone sarcophagus, the only one found so far on the island of Crete. Tourists are few, only 4 euro, children up to 18 years do not pay. On the side, next to the tiny, historic cerkiewki with the remains of frescoes (14th century) are benches where you can sit and soak up the atmosphere of the ancient walls. But there is no information about the excavations throughout the ruins and their destiny.
