Kritsa has many Byzantine churches with wonderful frescoes of the 14th and 15th century.
The most remarkable is the famous "Panagia Kera", with its dome and steep sides, surrounded by cypress trees offering an astonishing sight.

On the way to the village of Krousta, around 15 min from Kritsa, one can easily reach the Monastery of Agios Ioannis Theologos (built in 1,215 AC) which also served as a secret meeting point for the rebel Captains, during the revolution in Eastern Crete.
