Moni Kapsa Monastery (Μονή Καψά) 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. The most interesting view of the monastery is from the sea. If you sail to the nearby island of Koufonissi , you will have the opportunity to look at Moni Kapsa from the deck of the ship.
