Our neighbourhood - The bay and valey of Mesara!
In an island full of climatologically and environmental diversities, the area of the Mesara has a unique character and a lot of diversities to offer itself. It is the largest plain of Crete that extends to the central and southern region of Heraklion County. It is surrounded from the north by mount Idi (Psiloritis), from east by mount Dicti and from south by mount Asterousia that meet with the Libyan Sea. While the land of the Mesara plain is one of the most fertile on the island, the landscape changes dramatically as the traveller reaches mount Asterousia. A few small ports are the only ones that disrupt the deserted scenery.
Monkshood blossomed here from the 7th till the 15th century, something that can be easily detected by the number of monasteries and sketes found in the near gorges and canyons. Some of the finest examples are the monasteries of Odigitrias, Koudouma and Apezanon, the sketes of Saint Nikita, Marsalo and Agiofarago gorge. At the edge of the western point of mount Asterousia lies Listaros Village, the last passage to the mountain and the south coast.
