The Monastery of Faneromeni at Sitia

The Monastery of Faneromeni of Sitia is found at a distance of 8 kilometers far from Sitia at the West, close to the beaches of Platani and Aghioi Pantes, just beside the entrance of the gorge of Aghioi Pantes. A good cement-sealed road leads from the beach up to the Monastery.

The name of Faneromeni (meaning “appeared”) has been given to the Monastery because of the icon of Virgin, found within a cave near the church. The church goes back to the 14 th century. The wall paintings preserved are dated to 1455; some of them are blackened due to a fire set once by the Ottomans. An old inscription shows that the Monastery had been restored in 1624.

Access from Aghios Nicolaos or Sitia is possible by rented or private car and motorbikes.
