Christ Savior monastery


Christ Savior monastery in Psathi
(1 Vote)


On the main road that leads from Koutsounari to the village of Agios Ioannis in the province of Ierapetra we meet a sign to the Monastery of the Transfiguration of the Savior in Psathi. From there, a bad dirt road leads us to the position Psathi where this small monastery, also known as Pelekkissia, was built. Today, the monastery is inactive and only the church of the Transfiguration of the Savior, which celebrates on 6 August, remains.

Within walking distance of the church there are the ruins of buildings, which were apparently the monk cells of the monastery. There is also a small cluster of Cretan date palm trees beside an old stone-built cistern, and many perennial olive trees around the monastery.
