Panagia Katholiki church at Tria Monastiria
(5 votes)

At the suburb Tria Monastiria of Rethymnon city, just opposite the entrance of the Municipal Cemetery of the city, we meet a ruined stone building with a small church on its roof, in a beautiful olive grove.

This building is an inn, one of the many built in Crete, which was built during the Venetian Era for the travelers who had to stay out of the castle of Rethymnon, as the gates closed at sunset. We still see, at the ground floor, the rooms where travelers and animals stayed overnight.

Above the roof, a stone staircase leads to the chapel of Panagia Katholiki (Catholic church of Virgin Mary), which still dominates the area. Despite efforts to restore the deserted building and the church, this is still deserted.
