Ayofarango (Agiofaraggo) is named after the holy ascetics who were dwelling in the caves of the gorge that leads from the Monastery of Hodegetria to the Libyan Sea. The cave-dwellers would come on Sundays and the main feasts to St Anthony, the main church of the canyon.Συνεχίστε την ανάγνωση του “Ayofarango, the Holy Canyon | Crete”
