The road leading through the Kotsifou Gorge (Φαράγγι Κοτσιφού) is undoubtedly one of the most scenic road routes in Crete. Driving from the northern side, the narrowest point of this ravine crosses, where steep walls are not more than 10 meters apart. In the southern part of the ravine there is a very characteristic chapel dedicated to Saint. Nicholas. This small stone building hidden under a rock overhang creates such an amazing view that the vast majority of tourists traveling for the first time along this road stop to capture it in the picture.
Currently, in the spring time, this place still abounds in a large amount of water. The stream flowing through the bottom of this ravine humming gently crosses the next thresholds, within which it forms a small backwaters. In the old days there were water mills in this place, whose remains are visible to this day.
If you have never had the opportunity to see this gorge, or you would like to recall the view of Kotsifou, then we invite you to watch the above film.
