Arkadi monastery

This beautiful old monastery is wonderful at any time of the day, but is even more beautiful in the golden light of sunset. The monastery was the backdrop to one of the many Cretan uprisings against the Ottomans, and after being destroyed during an explosion, it was rebuilt to its former glory and today is an absolute must visit. The route that leads there, too, is beautiful.
