Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα) is the fourth largest city of Crete and also the largest town located in the Lassithi prefecture. It is located on the south-eastern coast of the island, in the place of its characteristic narrowing. The name of the largest city in this part of Crete is by no means synonymous with some astronomical number of people living permanently in Ierapetra . In 2011, it was only about 16 thousand inhabitants. Low buildings, however, cause that the city is quite extensive and occupies a relatively large coastal area.
If you have not been able to get here today, we are sending you a special invitation from Teo Vafidis. We spent several unusually pleasant hours in the company of our friends from Crete (Physis of Crete) and the countless number of guests who visited their stand. We were very pleased to meet some of our readers. If you are looking for a good olive oil and organic cosmetics from Crete, then tomorrow is the opportunity to buy them (remember to take cash).
We have recently posted a description of the Imbros gorge on the site and today we would like to present you a short video of our trip to this place. This gorge is sometimes called Samaria in miniature and its narrowest place is only 1.6 meters wide. In our opinion, its advantage is that it is not so crowded.
