The Agios Antonios Monastery is built on imposing rocks in the exit of the Arvi gorge of the Viannos municipality. The monastery is justifiably described as Meteora of Crete.
Two churches are in the monastery and the one is the newest. Both churches are dedicated to Agios Antonios.
It is estimated that it was built in 1800 on the ruins of the Arvios Dias (i.e. Zeus) temple.
