The wealth of the Byzantine monuments makes Crete the perfect destination for religious pilgrims. Monuments of centuries-old ecclesiastic architecture and art, small forgotten churches and monasteries give testimony to the country's rich religious heritage. Byzantine and post-Byzantine churches in small villages, and countryside, monasteries and cells, decorated with excellent mosaics, paintings and icons, testify the persistence of faith and tradition.
