Agios Savas

Saint Savas Church, Ellinoperamata
(3 votes)

The current deserted monastery of St Savas is located at a degraded location of Heraklion (next to the industries of cement and fuel at Ellinoperamata). The monastery was founded in the 10th century by Nicephorus Phocas and was apparently abandoned after invasions from the sea. The monks of St. Savas probably moved to a more protected area and founded the present monastery of Savvathiana.
