Even if the rest of Greece is hot during August, the dense oak trees shades of Vikos Aoos National Park, in the North Pindus Mountains, make hiking the Vikos gorge possible. We visited the area in mid-August.
About 20Km north east of Chania town in Crete we discover one of the most impressive and peaceful monasteries in Greece, the Aghia Triada (Holy Trinity) Tsagarοlon Monastery. It is the largest monastery in Crete with a big yard that accommodates a large chapel in the middle. There are also many smaller chapels. Its architectural style is Venetian and Cretan Renaissance.
