Breathtaking Architecture Of Arkadi Monastery [image details]

The Arkadi Monastery (in Greek: / MonĂ­ ArkadhĂ­ou) is an Eastern Orthodox monastery, situated on a fertile plateau 23 km (14 mi) to the southeast of Rethymnon on the island of Crete in Greece.The current catholicon (church) dates back to the 16th century and is marked by the influence of the Renaissance. This influence is visible in the architecture, which mixes both Roman and baroque elements. Overhere, I have utilised the Venetian Arches to framed the main building of the Arkadi Monastery to achieve a greater depth for the image.
