Az Arkadi kolostor a krétai szabadságharc szimbóluma. Az 1866. november 9.-i krétai felkelés után a kolostor nemzeti szentély (szent hely) lett. November 9. a szigeten ünnepnapja. A többihez hasonlóan a az Arkadi kolostor is törökökkel szembeni ellenállás központja volt. Az 1866. évi felkeléskor, amely egész Krétára kiterjedt, 331 férfi, 657 asszony és gyermek menekült a kolostorba, melyet nem sokkal azután Musztafa pasa 22000 fős sereggel ostrom alá vett. Miután a krétaiak látták, hogy helyzetük reménytelen, Gavril apát inkább felrobbantotta a lőszerraktárat, semhogy a törökök fogságába essenek. A hatalmas robbanást csupán 140 védő élte túl; 1800 török is áldozatul esett.
