Crete tourist guide

The best Polish website dedicated to the Greek island Crete and to a small extent of continental Greece. You will find useful information related to visiting Crete that goes beyond the offer of optional tours. On the website you will also find descriptions of the most interesting places that we visited by visiting this largest Greek island. The content complements the current news, photographs and recipes of Greek cuisine.

Car tour from Agios Nikolaos

Today we present another plan for a road trip around Crete. This is the third proposal, this time in the area of Lassithi Prefecture, with the starting point in Agios Nikolaos. We estimate its time consumption in the basic version at about half a day. As before, people who will implement such a plan (now or in the future) are encouraged to show off the photos from each stage.

Tour 3

We set off from the town of Agios Nikolaos. On our map, the conventional starting point is marked by the vicinity of Lake Voulismeni, although of course you can set off from anywhere in the city or go to its vicinity.

The first place we suggest to visit is Olive Oil Park Physis of Crete . The Olive Park is about 2 km outside Agios Nikolaos. It is an interesting place for those who are interested in the production of olive oil and the search for great quality products. In addition to getting to know the technical side of pressing olive oil, you will have the opportunity to test it here. It is a new point on the map of Crete attractions, which is worth visiting, the more that its creators have been producing olive oil awarded in various prestigious competitions for years. In addition, people who have been to the Greek Panorama in Warsaw may associate the Physis of Crete company and its products from this event. The Oliwa Park is open from 9 am to 5 pm.

From the park, we move to the next place, which is a small Byzantine church from the 13th-14th centuries, Panagia Kera . It is located just one kilometer from the village of Kritsa and is one of the most famous religious monuments in Crete. Inside, you can see unusual frescoes that were hidden under the plaster for hundreds of years. The early Christians concealed their presence to protect them from destruction by the Turkish occupier. The frescoes were not rediscovered until 1971.

The next point on the map of the trip is the village of Kritsa . Here, the car must be left in the large parking lot at the beginning of the village and explored on foot. It is one of the largest and oldest Cretan villages, the origins of which date back to the 2nd century BC. To appreciate the charm of this village, you just have to venture into its thicket of streets. The higher you go, the older buildings you get. The best patent is to go where your legs will go. You will also notice that this is a good place to buy local products, handicrafts and souvenirs. It is also an excellent outdoor location for photographic enthusiasts and hunters of the Cretan climate.

If you are passionate about hiking, there is also a 4-kilometer-long picturesque Kritsa gorge next to this village. People who would like to take the walk must of course take into account the additional time allocated for this walk, take appropriate footwear and a supply of drinks.

From Kritsa, we drive a bit further to the Lato archaeological site. Here are the ruins of a Doric city-state, which is one of the best-preserved cities from the Hellenistic period. In its heyday, it was also one of the strongest cities of Crete. These are excavations that are not very often visited, and in our opinion, it is worth visiting them.

Finally, we suggest a visit to the local Stavrakakis tavern in the small village of Lakkonia . It is located near the Lato excavations. We had a chance to eat at this place once and think it is a good place to dine and end the tour.

From Lakconia, we return to Agios Nikolaos by local minor roads or we get to the main road E75 connecting Agios with Heraklion.

PS. However, if you feel that you do not want to end this trip, we recommend the picturesque Voulisma beach to complete it.

Ja dodałbym jeszcze przynajmniej krótki spacer po płaskowyżu Katharo - jedziemy w górę z Kritsy, na końcu drogi asfaltowej dość klimatyczna tawerna i możliwość krótszego lub dłuższego spaceru po płaskowyżu otoczonym górami Dikti, wiosną z ogromną ilością kwiatów, my byliśmy na początku maja niesamowicie kwitły między innymi anemony - we wszystkich trzech kolorach.

Oj tak. Katharo to bardzo klimatyczne miejsce, i w ogóle nieznane ogółowi. Choć w zasadzie może na szczęście ;-)

gość PiotrWie: Po pobieżnym obejrzeniu tego filmu widzę ze słusznie unikamy tamtych okolic - to Kreta "nie z naszej bajki"
gość dodekanezowiec: Dlategoż jakem Dodekanezowiec - wspomnę, iż lato na Dodekanezie jest dłuższe, a październik słoneczniejszy. Tylko Ierapetra walczy z Rodos jak równy z równym :) Ale Cypr wymiata - 9 godzin słońca w październiku i 7 w listopadzie.  
Czy ktoś jutro jedzie przez lub z Rethymno samochodem i ma 2 wolne miejsca?
gość Kk: Dziękuję bardzo za informację.
