    It is worth stopping at the monastery and admiring the beauty of the lush canyon and cool off at the local spring. The monks are very friendly and ready to tell you the history of the monastery. The main body of the central church is modern, while the chapel of St. George (the initial temple built by Nikolaos) has also modern wall paintings. Here also operates a modern nursing home that has been built on the ruins of the old cells of the monastery.

    Elounda

    Elounda is ideal for people who want a seaside holiday in a place that is neither too busy nor too isolated. In Elounda you will find small, pretty beaches, visit the island of Spinalonga, walk along the peninsula of Kolokytha (the word means “gourd” or “pumpkin”), and explore the many little villages far from the sea, offering a window into times gone by.


    Plaka of Elounda

    Plaka is more a small suburb of Elounda, about 4km away, than an independent village. The water is crystal clear and the beach is made up of smooth white pebbles. There are more nice sand and shingle beaches in the vicinity. Mountains encompass Plaka and the beach is protected from the wind so it is possible to swim in late autumn. A well-known sightseeing excursion is to the Island of Spinalonga which is steeped in history. There was a leper colony there until the 1920s, which was provided for by Elounda.


    Unique Beauty
