Chania City – Ag. Triada Monastery – Venizelos’ Tombs (from Chania)
Chania is one of the places you are most likely to see on arriving in Crete. You will wonder in its Venetian harbor with the old port, the narrow shopping streets & its waterfront restaurants. This is the best chance to see some of the old buildings – of Venetian and Turkish design, that Crete once had across the island – many have since been destroyed by the ravages of war and plunder. Our tour is continued to Aghia Triada of Tsagarolon Monastery. The monastery plays an important role in the ecclesiastical life of Crete and the local economy, while it is also one of the major historical monuments of the island, hosting a small museum with various pictures and icons. You will see an incredibly well-preserved and vibrant monastery that produces and exports organic olive oil, wine, honey, vinegar and olive oil soap best quality. Venizelos’ Graves has magnificent views from amongst the trees, on a hill above Chania, across the town. Here are located the graves of the charismatic Greek politician, and seven times Prime Minister of Greece, Eleftherios Venizelos, and his son, Sofoklis Venizelos, who was also Prime Minister of Greece from 1943 to 1952.
