Panayia Akrotiriani

At the place of the Tobacco Revenue Office and of the church of the Holy Trinity, of the same name quarter, behind the vegetable market, there was, during the first half of the 17th century, the orthodox nun monastery of the Panayia Akrotiriani, which depended on the Monastery of Toplou (Sitias). During the Turkish period, the Turks demolished the monastery and built barracks which, time after time, had other uses. Lately, the place was used as a Tobacco Revenue Office, while today it is reconstructed by the 13th Archaeological Service and it will very soon house the Byzantine Museum.
