Crete's Petrified Monsters

Agii Theodori, the petrified monsters, are two small islands off the coast of Crete. Legend tells that long ago these islands didn't exist. A sea monster and its baby were coming to attack the villagers who prayed to the Virgin Mary and to St. George to spare them. Then a miracle occurred and the monsters were petrified into stone, thus forming these two small islands.
