  • Lovely if tragic site. Probably need a hr or so to visit. Very moving when you learn its history. Cheap entrance. If have ID on you, especially students show it and you often get discounted entrance.....  more »
  • The Arsaniou Monastery in Rethymno prefecture is located near Pangalochori, 11 kilometers east of Rethymno, so you can easily arrive there by car. Very nice and peaceful men's monastery, with beautifully decorated walls and ceilings. Worth seeing!
  • We went to light a candle in remembrance of the wife's mother. It's a very beautiful place,so peaceful. It was a very moving experience.
