At about 8 kilometers from the village and at 500 meters from the sea level one can see the peaceful environment of the Monastery of Agios Georgios.
Here you can admire the rare ancient wall paintings of the Temple as well as the inclination of the “inclined church” as the experts call it due to the great inclination to the south that has suffered because of its age and the settlement of the soil. But the grace of the Saint and the appropriate human interventions have saved the church from the risk of collapse.
Melabes is a village with a rich but recent and older history. God generously gave to this place unparalleled natural beauty, amazing view, and especially friendly people and created a little paradise here in South Crete.
