Monasteries / Churches
Crete has lots of beautiful monasteries, churches and chapels;
unfortunately today many of them are very much threatened by maturity.
This applies especially to magnificent frescoes and ikon paintings from
the years 961-1204 and primarily for over 300 registered Byzantine churches.
The photo shows the chapel Agios Pandeleimonas at the top of Mesa Patela near the ruins of an ancient settlement from Hellenistic period.
