It is also worth visiting some old and historic monasteries: the Monastery of Agia Triada (Trinity) built in 17th century, 20 km from Chania, the Monastery of Gouverneto of 16th century, 25 km from Chania and of course, the Monastery of Agios Ioannis (Saint John) of 7th century, which is the oldest in Crete. It is built on a steep ravine and you have to descend 385 stairs to get there. The Monastery is carved into the rock and the cave next to it was the place in which Saint John passed all his life, as a hermit. In the same area, between the two monasteries, there is the impressive cave of Arkoudiotissa or Arkouda (bear), which is called like this because of a stalagmite that has the form of the bear.

One of the most important sights in Akrotiri is the tombs of Venizelos family. In this place, which offers a spectacular, panoramic view of Chania, is buried the most important Greek politician and prime minister of 20th century, Eleftherios Venizelos.

Chania - Kydonia - AKROTIRI
Chania - Kydonia - AKROTIRI
East of Chania and at a distance of barely 15 km, following the road towards the International airport, is the peninsula called Kiamon in the old days and Akrotiri today. It is a historic peninsula associated with the liberation struggles of Crete. Akrotiri shapes the bay of Suda, one of the biggest natural harbours in Greece.
Worth visiting:
The Venizelos graves, 6 km from Chania, with a breathtaking view of the town
The monastery of Agia Triada, 16 km from Chania. One of the few monasteries in Crete where monastic life is practised.
The monastery of Gouverneto, 20 km from Chania, which has beautiful embossed decorations in Venetian style. The liturgies of Holy Week are atmospheric. Older than the monastery of Agia Triada, with old murals, it gives a feeling of seclusion and isolation.
The beaches of Akrotiri. There are many beautiful beaches, such as Stavros, Kalathas, Tersanas, Loutraki, Marathi.
Kalathas is a small natural bay on the edge of a ravine, with a quiet, sandy beach. Also visitors can swim to the islet which is very close by. The beach can be crowded in summer and at weekends. Very shallow and ideal for children.
Stavros is another beautiful beach. One of the bays of the area gives the feeling of a lake because of its small size. In this area you can find an abundance of fish. At this place filmed the famous Alexis Zorbas and Stavros had its moment of fame.
Loutraki, is a tiny beach with extremely crystal clear water.
Marathi, discovered a few years ago by the inhabitants of Chania. It gets very crowded at weekends. Nice sandy beach with quite warm shallow water.
