Chryssoskalitissa Monastery is an Orthodox Christian monastery located on the island of Crete, Greece. Located on the south-west coast of the island, it lies some 72 kilometres south-west of Chania. Built up on rocks some 35 metres high, it overlooks the Libyan Sea. According to Cretian tradition, the name of the monastery is derived from one of the ninety steps which lead there, which is said to be golden ("chrysso" in Greek).[1] The monastery is dedicated to the Holy Trinity ("Agia Triada") and the death of Virgin Mary ("Kimisis of Theotockos") but the date it was built is unknown.[2]
