AGIA TRIADA TSAGKAROLON MONASTERY
The Patriarchal Monastery of Agia Triada Tsagarolon is one of the most important monasteries built during the end of the Venetian Empire in Crete and a great contributor to the history and education of the island. It is located on the foot of Stavros mountain chain, in the area “Tzompomilos” of Meleha cape.
According to tradition that is also confirmed with documents from the archives of Venice, it was built by the brothers Ieremias and Lavrentios Tsagarolon that came from a great Venetian-Cretan family and had a powerful influence in the Orthodox population and the Catholic Venetians.
