Chrissoskalitissa, Chania Crete

Situated 76 kilometers far from Chania, at the Southwest, at the Western coast of Crete, Chrysoskalitissa is a small village with few permanent residents, a resort for locals and few tourists.

The most important sightseeing is the Monastery of Panaghia Chrysoskalitissa (meaning “with golden steps”); it is uncertain when it has been built. The old tradition of the Monastery pretends that one out of the 90 steps dug in the rock and leading to the top is made of gold; however, only the sinless are able to distinguish it.

The small bay Stomio with a rocky coast is worth seeing for its natural beauty and view.

A local feast (“panighyri”) takes place on 15 th of August, in honor of the Assumption of Virgin Mary (Monastery of Panaghia Chrysoskalitissa).

Only a few rooms to let are available for accommodation.

Access is possible by private and rented car or motorbike.
