Gouverneto Monastery

Gouverneto Monastery or Our Lady of the Angels is a Greek Orthodox monastery on the Akrotiri peninsula, in Chania. It is located about 30 kilometres from Chania, and is about 5 kilometres north of the Agia Triada Monastery. The Monastery is dated to 1537, although other sources say 1548. Many sources consider it as one of the oldest monasteries in Crete.

In the 1637 census, which was recorded shortly before the Turkish invasion, revealed that at the time there were 60 monks living there, making it one of the largest in Crete at the time. During World War II, the Germans established a guardhouse in the monastery to control the area. Since 2005 it has undergone restoration work by the monks.
