The Crete region
After having covered a total distance of 35 km from Rethymno you will arrive at the crossroads of Kissou Kampos. The road to the right leads to a number of villages such as Ardaktos, Drimiskos, Kerame and - most important - to Sotiras Christos, the village of Akoumia and the beautiful beach of Ligres. The Church of Sotiras in the village of Akoumia is ornamented with frescoes. The road turning to the right inside the village will take you to the famous beach of Akoumia and to the beach of Triopetra. Agia Paraskevi and Agalianou are two very small traditional villages of Crete, with friendly people and nice surroundings.
The climate is the classic Mediterranean, warm most of the period of the year and nice to feel every time.
The Rethymno / Aghia Paraskevi area
You can spend your time at the beach, make a walk in the village or make a tour by car to Preveli Monastery and Preveli beach, Spili, Agia Galini which are nearby.
Apart from the religious holidays, the farmers' and stockbreeders' festivities are of similar importance. Such festivities are related to the harvest of agricultural produce, the testing of the produce or stock breeding procedures. Since the necessary and often hard work could only be accomplished if all the villagers joined together and helped each other, many of these events developed into celebrations. The host organises a feast with music and dancing in order to thank all those who helped accomplish the task.
It was the necessity of agricultural tasks that helped the villagers to enhance their life, to develop long-lasting bonds of friendship, to have fun and to express their enthusiasm and devotion for nature and productivity. In a similar vein the grape harvest, which takes place in September, developed into a true festival with a lot of fun and singing, which is continued when the grapes are pressed to produce wine and raki. The event of raki distilling is also celebrated as the so-called festival of the "kazani" (cauldron).
Furthermore the cultivation and harvest of various other produce always offers the opportunity to celebrate as for example during the cherry and walnut harvest and in earlier times during the olive harvest. Another impressive festivity takes place in the area of stock breeding, when the sheep are sheared in springtime. The stockbreeders of the mountain villages invite their friends and relatives and after the shearing they all celebrate the event with plentiful food and wine, and music and dancing.
