    Chania Holy Trinity Monastery (Agia Triada)

    The Monastery of Holy Trinity or Agia Triada is a standout among the most noteworthy monasteries in Crete. It is situated in Akrotiri, approximately 15 kilometers from Chania city and very close to Chania Airport.

    The Monastery was built on the site of an old church in the 17th century by two brothers from the Venetian Zangaroli family hence the name Tsangarolon which the monastery is also known by.  The architecture of the monastery is characterized by its Byzantine cruciform style with three domes and its Ionian and Corinthian style columns.

    The monastery produces its own olive oil and wine and it also has its own small museum which you can visit. The entrance is on the far left of the exterior of the monastery and can often easily be missed.
