Holy Apostles monastery, Lassithi Plateau
(1 Vote)

At this place operated during the Turkish Era a small male monastery dedicated to the Holy Apostles. When in 1823 Hasan Pasha attacked the Plateau from this side after having burnt Kritsa, his troops passed from here and destroyed the monastery. The monks who survived moved to the monastery of Panagia Kroustallenia and the monastery was deserted.
