Throughout history, Chania was a place of strong intellectual and religious activity. Proof of this are the many places of worship, the ruins of ancient temples of ancient Minoan and Greek gods, the over 300 churches of the Byzantine and Late Byzantine period, the humble chapels that are spread around the rural area of the prefecture and the plethora of monasteries with their invaluable treasures and relics ready to welcome the visitor that wishes to experience spirituality. One really feels connected to God in the stunning natural landscape that the monasteries are built in. For anyone seeking to experience religious tourism or to explore byzantine art and ecclesiastic architecture, Chania is the place to be.
