This is a very pretty, peaceful and traditional village and along with Archanes one of the prettiest villages in Crete. Archanes has kafeneons, minimarkets and tavernas. It has a small village square which has a few busks and statues and looks lovely for a stroll and a coffee enjoying the sunshine.
1km away from Archanes is much bigger and a bit livelier with many tavernas, restaurants, kafeneons and shops and open air cinema. The village square has also statues and busks. A wonderful pretty village to enjoy. 12 kms from the beaches and also Heraklion.
