The Kotsifou Gorge can be included in the list of the most interesting places located in the southern part of Rethymno Prefecture. A narrow road winds here between steep rocks, and the small chapel of St. adds additional charm. Nicholas built directly into a rock niche. One of the main access roads to Plakias also runs through Kotsifou.
If you are planning a late holiday in this area, it is worth noting that renovation works will be carried out in this area from mid-October. During them, vehicular traffic on the road leading through Kofsifou will be suspended. Unless unforeseen circumstances occur, the work is expected to be completed by the end of the first decade of December 2023.
The planned works are aimed primarily at improving safety, as rock slides have been a constant problem here. Dangerous and unstable rocks are to be removed, and slopes and slopes are to be reinforced and covered with special meshes.
