A little south of the village Listaros, on the road to Kali Limenes and Agiofarago we meet the historic monastery of Panagia Odigitria. The Odigitria Monastery apart from the Minoan antiquities, the Byzantine treasures and the Tower of Xopateras hosts also a wonderful folk museum.
Within the rooms of the museum we meet a huge collection of really any kind of tool that was useful to farmers and breeders of the past decades. There are also many utensils of old houses in Crete. There is a loom, wooden furniture, religious objects and all kinds of stuff. At the same place we find the traditional wine press and the basic equipment of an old pre-industrial oil mill.
