Monastary Church, Spili Crete Greece

The Orthodox church is reached from Spili through a narrow gorge with vertical cliffs and across the Megapotamos River. While many monasteries in the area lie in ruin, the town recently rebuilt this church because of its role in the second World War. The Christian monks faced reprisals for their actions in the Cretan liberation struggles, and the church was left looted. The style is typical of 19th century Mediterranean religious structures, but still a stunning monument on the sandy beaches of Crete.
