Church of Agia Paraskevi


Church of Saint Paraskevi at Kamara
(1 Vote)

Near Kamara village in Kisamos Province, there is one well-hidden treasure of the Cretan countryside. It is the cavernous chapel of Saint Paraskevi (Agia Paraskevi), which is what remains of a small nunnery that was destroyed during the Turkish Era. There is a very big schinus tree, which is one of the oldest in Crete. 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.
