About this spot
Arkadi Monastery is a historic monastery possibly dating back to the 5th century. The current church was built in the 16th century. The monastery played an important role in the Cretan revolt from the Ottoman Empire. In 1866, hundreds of people seeking refuge in the monastery died during a siege of the monastery when, down to only a few fighters and surrounded by thousands of Turkish forces, the abbot blew up barrels of gunpowder rather than surrender.
