(2 votes)

300m away from the monastery of Halepa there is the church of Agia Marina with old frescoes. The church bears the coat of arms of the family Kallergis, one of the most important families of the Venetian period, implying that the region was one of their fiefdoms. Kallergis family was so powerful that they had received special privileges from the Venetians, totally unknown to the other Cretans. In the past, Chalepa monastery operated as a nunnery at this location, before moving to its present location in 1673.
