About the Real CreteAround Kissamos there are not archeological sites or special tourist attractions, and this is precisely what is attractive about it. Here you can find nature and real local Crete culture.
You can start by going through a narrow canyon with dramatic views, road leading into tunnels through the mountains and the special chestnut valley. The valley is luscious with groves where vines and chestnuts are grown.
At Kissamos there is a fascinating geological phenomena of rock columns called Komolithi, and these are unique to the Crete region.
You will be able to stay in Kissamos in quiet towns, see monasteries and Greek-orthodox churchs, dine with locals in authentic tavernas and enjoy walking in around the uncommercialzied alleyways.
