Location description from owner

The Heraklion Prefecture region

The village of Archanes is one of the most beautiful as well as historical in Crete. It is located at the roots of mount Giouchtas, where the ancient king of gods, Zeus, died. This is why the mountain has the form of a gigantic face when seen from the west. The mountain also hosts a very limited population of vulture-eagles, unique in Europe.

Archanes is full of traditional houses made of stone and narrow alleys that visitors like to wander. The central square of the village is particularly beautiful and visitors come from all over the county to dine at the taverns located there.

Archanes is 5km away from the ancient minoan palace of Knossos. In fact, there is a small minoan palace in Archanes and a minoan observatory at the top of mountain Giouchtas. The observatory overlooks the northern shores of Crete. The mountain is accessible by car and by foot and it has to offer a wide variety of herbs. There are also other significant archaeological sites in the area such as ancient Greek toomps from the Mycenaen period.

Since the minoan times, the area produces grapes and wine, especially dry red wine. Anchient Eltynia was the place where minoan vineyards were cultivated right next to Archanes from 2500 b.c. Since then, the area has never stopped producing wine and visitors may find may wineries that produces it from local varieties of grapes.

Archanes also played a significant part in modern Cretan history. During the Cretan liberation revolution, Archanes was the capital of the revolution. During world war II it was in Archanes where German general Kraipe was abducted by the Greek and British. This was the single abduction of a german general during the war.

Archanes

Archanes rests at the top of Heraklion county, the biggest of the four Cretan counties (the other three are Chania, Rethimno and Lasithi) 15 km away from Heraklion. The city is accessible by means of the central county road that connects northen Heraklion with southern. Visitors may reach Heaklion in 15 minutes and the more isolated south in about 35.
