Monastery of Bali or Atali

Situated at a place with marvelous view, overlooking the tourist resort of Bali, the Monastery of Atali is 37 kilometers far from Rethymnon at the East. The name is owed to a false pronunciation of Astali, the name of the ancient town in the area.

The Monastery has been established possibly in the 17 th century. Due to its location close to the Bali bay, the Monastery has played a very important role in the Revolution of 1821 and later, but it has been abandoned in the 19 th century and restored recently in the 1980s'.

The Catholicon of the Monastery is dedicated to Aghios Ioannis (St.John) and has an impressive facade with several architectural features of the Renaissance.
