Vidiani Monastery

Vidiani Monastery at Lassithi Plateau

Vidiani Monastery was founded in the mid-19th century by monk Methodius. During the revolution of 1866, the Monastery was set on fire by the Ottomans, but it was soon rebuilt.

During the German occupation, its abbot, Dorotheus, was executed by the Germans for his resistance activity.

The catholicon of the monastery is a single-spaced church dedicated to the Life-giving Font and features a beautiful wood-carved chancel screen.
