The Patriarchal Monastery of Chrysopigi was founded in Chania during the last period of the Venetian Period (end of 16th century) and is dedicated to Panagia Zoodocho Pigi. Every year come thousands of pilgrims from Greece and the abroad to kneel the miraculous icon of Panagia.

During the centuries the monastery came across periods of blooming and decline. It suffered from numerous raids and serious destructions by the Turks and German conquerors of Crete. The Monastery accomodated males until 1976, when it was transformed into a female monastery and was also restored from foundations.
