Welcome to Central Iraklio


Wine also grows near Dafnes and Venerato southwest of Iraklio, along the main road to Matala and the south coast. A wonderful detour takes you west to the southern slopes of Mt Psiloritis, where Zaros is a charismatic mountain village known for its spring water and trout.

You’ll need your own wheels to explore this region properly.
