Monastery of Timios Prodromos

The monastery of Timios Prodromos is located in Korakies of Akrotiri, about 100 metres from Lotos Luxury Apartments.

It is a historical woman's cloth monastery that is known to local people as the monastery of nuns. The monastery was destroyed many times by the different conquerors of Crete.

The monastery is surrounded by a tall wall and the central entry is vigil, in relation to the other monasteries around Akrotiri. At the centre of the wooded yard is located the double temple of Agios Ioannis Prodromos (it is celebrated on August 29) and Agios Georgios (it is celebrated on April 23), surrounded by frugal cells and the auxiliary buildings of the monastery. The icons of the monastery are works of nuns. In the monastery are also hosted the chapels of Agios Andreas Kritis and Panagia Portaitissa.
