Avlaki or Katholiko Gorge | Chania Gorges | Gorges| Κρήτη | Crete | Crete Island - Travel Magazine | Scoop.it

Avlaki gorge is located near the monastery Gouverneto, 16km east of Chania city. It is one of the most important gorges in Crete with a particular religious value, as many monks and hermits found shelter in its caves. Inside the small canyon there is the deserted Katholiko monastery, perhaps the oldest monastery in Crete. Thus, the gorge is also called Katholiko Gorge.

The Venetian Walls of Heraklion #Crete Island #Greece #travel

The Venetian Walls of Heraklion #Crete Island #Greece #travel | Crete Island - Travel Magazine | Scoop.it

The top of the Heraklion walls can be quite beautiful now, with long grass, trees, hedges and flowered pathways high above Heraklion’s city streets. It’s not paradise, but it is soft by Heraklion standards. Here and there toward the eastern side you will find that the path is still rough, and work is indeed continuing to both improve access to the walls and open up more areas of this unique feature of Heraklion.

This route is an opportunity to visit Prefecture' s top sites as Kourtaliotikos gorge and Preveli Monastery. Following the same road which goes to Ayia Galini through Amari Valley we arrive in the village of Koxare (23 km).

The gorge is narrow and wildly beautiful. On its bare sides are numerous springs and caves. The Kourtaliotis river which flows through it rises at five big springs, which form a waterfall 40 m. high.

Falassarna Harbour - Map of the archaeological site

Νο 1. Church of Agios Georgiosς
Νο 2. Τhe harbour

Νο 5. Auxiliary harbour

The harbour of Falassarna measured 100 m x 75 m and was the only “closed” harbour in West Crete.
The harbour-builders exploited the local lagoon, digging a channel to the sea 50 m long, 10 m wide and 2 m deep.
The harbour was particularly secure and the city walls extended along the harbour moles, making it a major naval and trading centre.

Arkoudospilios Cave | Chania Caves | Caves| Κρήτη | Crete | Crete Island - Travel Magazine | Scoop.it

Arkoudospilios (Bear Cave) or the Cave of Panagia Arkoudiotissa is located in Avlaki gorge of Akrotiri (Chania), 2km north of the Gouvernetou monastery, in the gorge connecting Gouvernetou with Katholiko Monastery. The cave is known for the bear-shaped rock that made the cave a place of worship of the ancient goddess Artemis.

The cave is an old riverbed that no longer exists and consists of a large room with some special partly-damaged decoration and smoke-blackened roof. There is a smaller second room where one enters through a very narrow passage. After this the cave continues, but the opening is very narrow to fit a human body.

The Gorge of Kourtaliotis & the Chapel of St. Nicholas the Ascetic. #Rethymnon #Crete #travel | Crete Island - Travel Magazine | Scoop.it

There are many gorges in the southern shores of the Cretan mountains. The Gorge of Kourtaliotis is one of the most attractive around the area of Rethymno. It starts at the slopes of the mountains Kouroupa (984 m) and Ksiros (904 m), a little after the village Koksare, it follows the river Kourtaliotis and ends up at the beach of Limni Preveli. The name of the gorge has its origin in the Cretan wordkourtala meaning “round of applause”. This refers to the sounds that are created when the sometimes very strong wind tears through the gorge.

At the outlet of the gorge stands the Chapel of St. Nicholas the Ascetic.
