Clinging to the craggy foothills of the Dikti range, Kritsa is one of the oldest and prettiest of the mountain villages in eastern Crete and a popular stop for tour buses. The upper village especially is redolent with romantic decay and the ghosts of the past. Many of Kritsa's older women still practise the art of traditional embroidery, although these days the doilies and blankets sold at the souvenir shops are most likely commercially produced.
