Monastery of Chrisoskalitissa

The Monastery of Chrissoskalitissa which is dedicated to Virgin Mary, is built on a rock in the southwestern part of the prefecture of Chania, 70 km from the city of Chania and just 5 km from the famous Elafonissi beach.

As the tradition says, the monastery named Chrisoskalitissa because the last of the 98 steps of the monastery was gold.
