  Exterior Moni Governetou
by bpwillet

This monastary has possibly been on this site since the 11th century and was used as a haven for pirates. Situated close to the coast and enclosed in a small valley makes this monastary a peaceful retreat.

Directions: North of Moni Agia Triada, follow the road as it winds northward.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
