Overview

We will start our tour from Chania City Center around 9am in the morning, heading to a magnificent and historical hill where we can admire the panoramic view of the town. The wine roads of Chania lead us to an extraordinary monastery, in the foothills of an old mountain range, built in 17th century by two monks from the ancient traditional Cretan family. The architecture of the building inspired by the famous Veronese architect Sebastiano Serlio. It was burned by the Turks in 1821 and restored in 1892.

The monastery has a great history and huge tradition on winemaking and olive oil production. The monks produce Cretan and international varieties of wine like ‘’Romeiko’’, ‘’Muscat of Alexandria’’, ‘’Trebianno’’, ‘’Cabernet’’ etc. Taste the extra virgin olive oil on traditional Cretan rusk with own-made cheese and fresh tomato accompanied with the best Cretan wine varieties. Also inside the monastery there are two museums with magnificent treasures. The one will show us the history of the monastery and the other one will learn us about the Cretan way of living and the wine-making in the past.  

Leaving the monastery with a unique taste on our palate we will visit a wonderful nature park, a gorgeous oasis only a few kilometres from the city center. We can admire and walk through the pure nature, smell the blooming vegetation and hear the birds singing.
