    Panagia Kroustalenia
    We generally like the calm of the monasteries, so whenever we pass by churches and monasteries, we usually make a stop. That is how we run on Panagia Kroustalenia, while we were driving along the Plateau of Lassithi. It was almost midday when we arrived and no people were around. The nuns had probably gone for lunch, because we saw only one at the entrance and then the monastery seemed empty. The environment was very nice with flowers in the yard, tall trees, a fountain at the back side, all very traditional and beautiful. The church had some nice icons and looked impressive in its loneliness.
