Church of Agia Paraskevi

Kamara

Church Agia Paraskevi, Kamara
(1 Vote)

Near Kamara village in Kisamos Province, there is one well hidden treasure of Cretan countryside. It is the cavernous chapel of Agia Paraskevi, which is what remains of a small nunnery that was destroyed during the Turkish Era. There is a very big schinus, which is one of the oldest in Crete (there is one more in Chochlakies Gorge by Sitia). It is said that the bell of the monastery was made of gold. Just next to the chapel, you will meet the wild and lush gorge of Kamara with amazing rock formations, not easily crossed due to very dense vegetation.
