The nunnery of Rodia, known as Holy Monastery of the Virgin Mary was founded in 1990 by the Bishop Nektarios Papadakis. The region of the monastery belonged to Agapi Sbokou, who donated that to the Archdiocese of Crete in order to found the monastery.

At the middle of the courtyard of the monastery we meet the temple of the Virgin Mary and the cells, guest houses and other facilities. The small aisled church is built with Aegean style and celebrates on November 21.
