This place can be found in the "Arkadi monastery" on Crete, Greece.

On the night of 7 to 8 November 1866 reached an Ottoman army with 15,000 men to the monastery. After two days of futile resistance decided the besieged, not wanting to fall alive into enemy hands. When the battle had moved on 9 November in the courtyard of the monastery, withdrew most of the remaining survivors, including women and children, in the powder magazine back, which was blown up by one of the fighters. In the violent explosion came down to one surviving girls all individuals and dozens therein invading Turkish soldiers killed. - Wikipedia
