Picturesque chapels and historic monasteries

One of the most picturesque images and loveliest walks in Anissaras is the walk to Cape Sarantaris and Agios Georgios Chapel. Offering an unbroken view towards Hersonissos bay and the picturesque smaller bays that adorn the coastline, this idyllic location is the perfect setting for weddings. In fact many couples do choose to celebrate their important day there.

There are many important historical monasteries near the Hersonissos area, such as Panagia Gouverniotissa Monastery, which is one of the oldest on Crete (at Potamies), Panagia Kardiotissa Monastery (at Kera), Agios Georgios Selinaris Monastery (23.4 km away), and Panagia Kroustallenia Monastery (37.9 km away), as well as Kremaston Monastery built in 1593 (34.3 km away) and Vidiani Monastery dating from the mid-19th century (34.5 km away).
