Monasteries in Crete

Moni Kapsa Monastery is one of the most interesting monasteries in Crete. Its massive buildings were erected on rocky, gray slopes surrounding the nearby Pervolakia Gorge. From a distance, it looks as if the monastery buildings were literally growing out of steep rocks.

Monastery of Odigitrias

The Odigitrias Monastery is one of the most famous monasteries of southern Crete. Unfortunately, in terms of popularity, he is far from other Cretan monasteries so often visited by tourists. Located a bit away from popular tourist routes, it attracts only those who relax near Matala.

Moni Katholiko is probably the oldest and most spectacular monastery in Crete. It is located 20 km north-east of Chania, on the Akrotiri peninsula near the exit of the Avlaki ravine. You can walk to Moni Katholiko only on foot because the road for cars ends at the parking lot near the Gouverneto monastery.

Complete history of the Preveli monastery (Turkish occupation)

Complete history of the Preveli monastery (Turkish occupation)

During the Turkish occupation, which began in 1649, the Preveli monastery, like many other such places, was destroyed. Later, it was rebuilt and once again was one of the most important monasteries in Crete, strongly affecting the local community of Sfakia residents. During this period, Preveli was also an important center of resistance to the Turkish occupation.

Aneta Okoniewska: Pięknie... aż łza się w oku kręci
Piotrek | www.crete.pl : No cóż każdy przewoźnik ma pewnie swoje własne procedury i w zależności od rachunku ekonomicznego stosuje różnego rodzaju strategie. Z tego co ja wiem to dosyć często stosowaną techniką jest rotacyjne podrywanie poszczególnych maszyn. Nawet na dosyć, krótkie loty polegające na wykonaniu kilku (zazwyczaj trzech) lądowań typu touch and go. Ma to podwójne zastosowanie. (...)
gość PiotrWie: Nam na razie Ryanair odwołał lot na 10 04 - mieliśmy lecieć na same święta, powrót 13 .04. Mamy jeszcze bilet na 08.05 do 25-05, ale nie liczymy na to ze polecimy. Myślę ze najwcześniej w połowie sierpnia jest jakaś szansa na powolny powrót ruchu turystycznego, ale nie jest wykluczone ze dłużej. (...)
gość ulla: mam wplacona zaliczke na  24 czerwca ale rozmawialam z biurem podrozy przenioslam termin na 16 wrzesnia mysle ze juz moze jakos sie to troche uspokoi.

Anna Czelej: Skad informacja, ze wczoraj zdiagnozowano kolejny przypadek na Krecie? Portale informacyjne o niczym takim nie pisza?
Anna Andrzejewska: Mam wykupiony pobyt w Chanii 12-27 kwietnia. Była to rezerwacja bezzwrotna. Nie wiem czy w obecnej sytuacji otrzymam zwrot kosztów. Tak czekaliśmy na ten wyjazd...
Mar Tyna: Dziękuję, że podajecie i aktualizujecie informacje z sytuacji na Krecie. Czekam zawsze na Wasz artykuł. Pozdrawiam serdecznie w ten ciężki czas.

Magdalena Gołembka: Zabrakło mi tutaj powietrznej wycieczki w kierunku plaży Nea Chora, ale i tak łezka w oku, mój wieczorowy rewir
Martyna Kiejziewicz: Piękne miejsce
Gosia | crete.pl : Hotele sezonowe (czyli większość) jest nieczynna do końca kwietnia. Grecja na razie ma zamknięte granice. Niestety nikt nie wie co przyniesie kolejny dzień. Póki co liczba chorych wzrasta więc raczej trzeba liczyć się z zaostrzaniem przepisów niż luzowaniem.
