A trip through the Samaria Gorge is certainly known to most people who were in the western part of Crete. This several-kilometer-long trail attracts thousands of tourists each year. Today we would like to invite you to watch our video, which we shot in this gorge last year.
Going deep into the Richtis Gorge located near the town of Exo Mouliana, it is hard not to resist the impression that it enters a land completely different from the rest of Crete. The abundance of water and shade mean that even at the peak of the tourist season, this place is full of lush vegetation. So obvious rust colors dominate in other places of Crete, they are completely absent here because their place is replaced by lush greenery.
The Koules Fortress is one of the most characteristic monuments of Heraklion. Once it was an element of fortifications that formed a tight ring that girded the capital of Crete. Today, this building has only a historical function and reminds of the power of the Venetians who ruled Crete during the period of splendor of this fortress.
While the arrival to Crete is one of the most enjoyable moments of vacation it is definitely hard to say the same about the departure. This moment marks the definitive end of the summer and goodbye to Crete. Today we would like to present you a short film from our this year's takeoff from the airport. Ioannis Daskalogiannis. In the further part of the film you can see the shots of the Akrotiri peninsula and Chania.
