In an area full of olive trees and orchards, Agia Triada of Rethymno is a small village with spectacular view at the opposite hill, where the old village of Santa Trinita is located, as it was called by the Venetians.

In the middle of the village, with its population not exceeding 50 residents, there is the Byzantine church that gave its name to this area. Apart from the church, the visitor’s attention is also attracted by the Venetian buildings along the narrow alleys. The residence of the during the Ottoman rule landlord, Aga Albanis, is one of the important monuments of the village.

The picturesque and quiet village, which had a great oil production as evidenced by the numerous mills, is situated at an altitude of 180 meters, with spectacular panoramic view.
