Moni Arkadi Monastery, Crete Island: 3 reviews and 9 photos
Not far from Rethymno, to the southeast of the city, is the monestary of Moni Arkadhi. The monestary is situated in the picturesque foothills of the Psiloritis mountain range and used to be one of the richest in all of Crete. The monestary has a lot of historical significance as well, and for that reason is one of the most celebrated monestaries on the island.
Getting to and from the monestary is quite easy using the bus. If you prefer to take a taxi, it is 20 Euros one-way from Rethymnon's old city, so I don't recommend this unless you are splitting the fare with at least two other people.
One word of warning: Either eat before you go or bring your own food, because the one and only cafeteria near the monestary is very expensive and not very good at all.
