The Axion Esti Convent, founded in 1984 by the Metropolitan Philotheos II, is located near the city of Ierapetra.

The catholicon is a three-aisled church dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the Annunciation and the Resurrection of the Lord. It is replete with murals, featuring work that is characteristic of the Cretan School, and its altar holds the remains of saints. There are also four chapels in the convent, dedicated to the Nativity of Jesus, All Saints, the Holy Trinity and the Transfiguration of the Redeemer.
