Agios Ioannis (Saint John) settlement is named after the small monastery of Saint John, which is built inside a two-level cave and has very old frescoes, dating back from 1360.

There are frescoes on the exterior walls of the abandoned monastery, a very rare phenomenon in Crete. The frescoes depict Saint Peter, some Archangels and Saint John above the gate.
