Photographer's Note

Moni Preveli is a monastery in the south of Crete, assumed to have been founded during the Venetian period of Cretan history, which was the 16th century.

There used to be two monasteries. Kato Moni Preveli, the lower one of them, was abandoned in 1867 after having been destroyed in a Cretan insurgency against the Turks. The monastery played a significant role for the resistance against German occupation during WW II, in which Kato M.P. was destroyed again.

This is the situation of 1987, captured on film with Canon A1 and scanned from paper print. As far as I know, at least some buildings have been repaired to house a museum.
