The actual Catholic of this monastery was built in 1587, possibly over an earlier church of the 14th century. It was an extremely wealthy Monastery, where there was a center of copying Greek manuscripts and a workshop of church embroideries.

The Monastery was of great strategic importance, which suffered the holocaust of 1866 in the revolution against the Turks.

In the collections of the Monastery are included: A collection of Cretan icons, ecclesiastical books and manuscripts, ecclesiastical heirlooms and vestments.
