  • The convent of our Lady of heart is located in the mountains on the road to the plateau of Lassithi. Small, but very cozy and relaxing. Everywhere felt the love and care of women's hands. All write about the icon of the Virgin Heart (Kardiotissy), but in fact there are 2 icons in the monastery of our Lady, 2 copies. To the right of the entrance to the temple hangs a new icon of our Lady, as a guide, not a copy of prayerful that the stolen icons 700s written Holy Lazarus. But the altar is a copy of the icon was brought from 1735g. (there are others), dark times, prayerful, although it is another iconographic type. And the copy and the original are considered to be miraculous. It is to her seek hundreds of pilgrims. In the temple to photograph, but the Museum is a good copy of this icon and the ban on photo No. Is puzzling paid entrance to the monastery, but the number of nuns little and probably need it for survival. In any case, it is worth visiting the monastery, settled by the miraculous Keroj Kardiotissoj.

  • Of serenity Beach holiday trip in this monastery we dipped in some other world, the world of the spirit and spirituality. I don't know why, but this place was remembered its warmth and serenity, a clean and Serene Highness. Feeling of lightness did not leave. Be sure to take a day among the busiest days of the holiday and visit this lovely, quiet, but such a bright place.
