The Monastery Agia Triada at the Akrotiri peninsula
The Monastery Agia Triada situated at Akrotiri peninsula near the village Stavros, a location planted with olive groves, vineyards and cypress trees. Architecturally it is one of the most important examples of the Cretan Renaissance. It was funded by brothers Jeremiah and Lorenzo of the old Venetian family. The Holy Trinity (Agia Triada) Monastery is probably the most impressive monastic complex of the final period of Venetian rule on Crete, due to both its scale and architectural form.
The small museum displays relatively few heirlooms rescued from the continued historical adventures of the monastery, mainly icons, holy utensils, and official documents. It combines elements of the Orthodox monastic style with western architectural forms and this reflects the spirit of convergence of the two dogmas on the island of Crete. There is a small Monastery-Shop where Monks offering their organic olive oil and wine. The olive oil of the Monastery Agia Triada has won many awards.
