Monastery of Arcadi, Crete

by melissa

The upper floor of the monastery houses the monks' cells, across the church.
The ground floor comprises the historic dining room where monks' heads were cut on the tables by the Turks yielding yatagans during the Arcadi monastery holocaust.
Greco-venetian architecture framing the sun, reflecting it on rosy surfaces like a maiden's cheek.
