Katalakko

It' s here

From the central road and northwesterly, you meet another one small, but amazing village, Katalakkos. If you won’t arrive in the depths of the gully, you can’t see it.

No Turk conqueror had ever come here also. It is built in a ravine and mainly hangs from the rocks. The view across the sandy dunes is impressive. Go on a relaxing jaunt to the narrow streets and travel to old times through the ruins of its half-demolished buildings.

Many of its little houses are well-preserved, with trim yards. Some remains of old monasteries and a castle of the 13th century are preserved here.

The stop at the shop “To Oneiro” is classified among the top must. It is a very clean renovated grocery, which functions as a café. Except from coffee, raki and jam, it also offers snacks with grilled food.
