Panagia Karydakiani monastery
(2 votes)

Here we meet the ruins of Panagia nunnery at position Karydaki. It was a two-aisled church with a transverse narthex. From a spring next to this monastery, the famous Morosini fountain in Candia (now Heraklion’s Morosini fountain at Lions square) was watered after running through a giant aqueduct system of that era. Reaching the temple is not easy, as you have to cross the nearby aqueduct bridge and walk in the sides of gorge for a while.
