Religious Monuments of Crete


The remote province of Sitia hosted several monasteries and convents, most of which followed the decline of the settlements and are now abandoned, retaining only their temples.

Church of Saint George in Voila

The church of Saint George (Agios Georgios) is located at the highest point of the ruined Medieval settlement of Voila, on the outskirts of Armeni village of Sitia, and very close to the imposing Venetian tower of Salamon family.


Church of Saints Apostles in Andromili

The church of the Apostles (Agii Apostoloi) is located in the ruined settlement of Andromyli, north of Lithines. It is a two-aisled church, the northern aisle of which is an addition to the original 9th-century single-nave church.


Church of Panagia in Lithines

The Church of Panagia (Our Lady) in Lithines, province Sitia, is located in the center of the village. It consists of the original Byzantine church of the Dormition of Theotokos, which is strangely honored at the Birth of the Virgin.
