It is one of the largest monasteries in Crete spread with a colossal fortune, located not far from Sitia, near the Vai palm grove. It is a historical place, since, during the War of Independence against the Turks, the monks were brutally murdered, and the monastery itself has been looted and destroyed many times. It is a property of 800m2, surrounded by protective walls and with 40 rooms, a 33m high campanile, and a well in the center of the courtyard. It is commonly believed that it has 100 doors, but only 99 have been found so far. An ancient inscription, kept in the monastery, refers to the conflict between Itanos and Ieraptyna. There are also valuable icons and murals from the 14th century. The Museum of Chalcography and Greek Folk Etching from Mount Athos is located in the monastery, where Gospels, revolutionary banners, church relics, and more are kept. You can also find products made by the monks like wine, raki and olive oil. On the 26th of September, the monastery hosts a large religious festival since this is its honorific feast. It is open to the public daily from 9:00-13:00 and 14:00-18:00.
