The settlement of Monastiraki is located at the 10th km of the highway from Ierapetra to Pacheia Ammos and at a detour of 2 km to the right near the ravine of Ha, at an altitude of 180 m., On the outskirts of Thripti. Its name is probably due to a small monastery that existed there from the first Christian times. This old monastery, during the Turkish occupation, was turned into a mosque. The settlement is located in a beautiful area with gurgling waters, green and endless views to the bay of Merabelos.
The view during sunset is magnificent and this is something that you shouldn't miss during your holidays.
