Preveli Memorial for the Resistance & Peace
Rethymno (South)
The Holy Monastery of Preveli, to mark the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Battle of Crete, decided to erect privately and under its supervision, an international memorial dedicated to the Resistance of the Cretan Population and Peace.
The Memorial was erected on the monastery's own land, on a site with a stunning panoramic view, overlooking the Libyan sea. The site is alongside the main bitumen road to the Monastery, and just 1.8 kms before the Monastery itself.

The project to build the Memorial, which is of major historical and humanitarian interest, touched many simple people from Crete and around the world who volunteered to assist its implementation in various ways.
The wish to erect a shrine in the land of the Holy Monastery of Preveli has been expressed in the past by the soldiers Tom Dunbabin and Geoff Edwards who fought in the Battle of Crete. The latter, who passed away on April 11 2000 was the main motivator of the action for the erection of this memorial.
