The cavernous chapel of Agia Kyriaki is located at the site of a former Minoan tomb near Agiofarago gorge. The main characteristic of the temple are the various loops inside the temple, on which the hermits and monks tied themselves during praying so as not to fall asleep. Another explanation for the existence of these loops is that during the years of the Arab rule, the cave was used as a prison and place of torture.
