Moni, Crete

Moni (Greek: Μονή) is a small village in Chania Prefecture on the island of Crete, Greece. The village is built at an elevation of 162 m. It has 53 residents (2001 census source) and is within the community of Sougia within the municipal unit of East Selino (Anatoliko Selino).

In 1943, during the German occupation, Germans bombed and burned the village, like the nearby villages of Livadas and Koustogerako, in a harsh reaction to local partisans actions.
