Church of Holy Mary of Pigadiotissa

The three-aisled church is located near the village of Thrapsano and is frequently mentioned in Andreas Cornaros’ writings.
More specifically, he mentions the following: “In a village of the famous Crete, called Thrapsano, there lies the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and it is called “Our Lady Pigadiotissa”. In front of the church there is a well, four fathoms deep, with a lot of water that is quite enough for the village, although it is populous, and no more water is near there”.
The present church is built on the site of a former one and the well has been recently renovated.
