Excursion Details

Αway from the coast, land that is not too rocky and mountainous is mainly given over to agriculture. One of the most fertile areas on Crete is the Lasithi plateau, a plain rising some 840 meters above sea level directly behind Áyios Nikólaos. Dotted with rural villages, orchards, and fields growing potatoes and cereals, it is also known for its white-sailed windmills, used to pump underground water for irrigation. Most tourists also visit a nearby attraction, the Diktean Cave, filled with stalagmites and stalactites and supposedly the birthplace of the king of gods, Zeus.
