The historical religious monuments of Greek Orthodoxy are connected with significant historical moments of the Greek people.
The historical significance of these historic religious monuments lies in the fact that the monks and the Fathers gathered the rebels in the churches and monasteries and protected them. The history of modern Crete goes through these monuments.
