Agia Anastasia Cave


Agia Anastasia Cave at Galipe
(3 votes)

In the short gorge of Agia Anastasia between Galipe and Kenourgio Horio villages, we find the small cavernous chapel of Agia Anastasia (Saint Anastasia). It is one of the 265 cavernous chapels of Crete and one of the most interesting. It is surrounded by pines and cypresses of a small artificial grove. There is water leaking from the roof, therefore it is considered miraculous.

The cave is spacious and quite ascending. It is white-brushed and very clean, while its bell tower is built on a natural rock. Around the chapel, there is space for picnic and recreation.

According to tradition, when a child suffers from a disease, it will be good if his parents pass it three times through the uniqie window of the temple (from outside to inside).
