    I have, in the past couple of years, become fascinated by the Ottoman Turks in the Mediterranean. The Monastery was the site of a massacre of Cretan soldiers and the civilians who sought refuge during the Ottoman resistance in the 19th century. It's a working monastery today, but much of the older rooms, like the kitchen, is open to visitors. Beautiful location with a fascinating history.

    Interesting place to visit. Lots of bits to see. Some of the ground is uneven and rough so need to watch your footing. Only 4 euros entry which is probably worth it. Great views from the top. You can get a site map at the ticket office. Take water and a hat on hot days as not much shade. Definitely worth a visit.

    This can be found after a short and scenic drive along the coast from Plakias, and it’s well worth the trip. The location is pretty spectacular, perched high above the Aegean, and its positioning took on a special significance during the Second World War when the monks were actively involved in Cretan resistance, sheltering allied troops, and escorting them down to the sea where groups of them, often Australian, were rescued by submarine. Inside the monastery itself there is a small museum – but also of interest is the fountain with an inscription in Greek which is a perfect palindrome; in English it translates as “Wash your sins, not only your face”.

    Memorial for Resistance and Peace: This was an unexpected find – we passed it on driving down to the Preveli Monastery, so we stopped off on the way back. The gates were locked, so were we wrong to climb the fence to be able to take a proper look at the memorial? It’s very impressive. Most striking is the statue of the armed priest, a representation of the Abbot at the time of the evacuation, Agathangelos Lagouvardos.
