Monastery of Aghia Marina of Voni

A hospitable Monastery dedicated to Aghia Marina with the miraculous icon and the museum of marvels that the Saint realised, according to the ecclesiastic history, for all faithful who asked her help.

That particular coenobitic is found at the village Voni, one of the villages on Messara plain to Herakleio prefecture, between vines and extensive plains, few kilometres from Thrapsano.

Aghia Marina of Voni is well known in Crete thanks to its marvel action. As then when, during the divine operation to the memory of the Saint, broke the support that kept the bell from the belfry so that the bell was falling towards the pilgrims on the courtyard of temple, when for unknown reasons it stopped its vertical fall and was ejected to the fields without suffering no one.

It celebrates on 17 July
