Arkadi Monastery, Rethymnon, Crete
Dating from the 16th Century, the Arkadi Monastery is one of Crete's few impressive historic sites built during the last millennium. Its distinguished honey-coloured Venetian church is particularly striking. On a plateau about 500 metres above sea-level, the Monastery feels surprisingly remote, despite its proximity to Crete's package holiday north coast and the frequent coach loads of visitors.
