Description: We will start our tour from Prasses, a wonderful medieval village. We can see the interaction of different cultures that passed through Crete, the Venetian mansions, the Ottoman farmsteads and the Orthodox churches. The village has been built on the edge of a gorge and is surrounded by lush greenery. This gorge is the departing point for many hiking excursions in summer. Our next stop is the Potami Dam of Amari. It is an artificial lake where all the water from the surrounding mountains is collected. The place attracts a lot of visitors, who can admire the new created wetland, the lush landscape, the geomorphological features of the area and the dam construction itself. Afterwards we continue driving through some beautiful villages such as Meronas and Gerakari to reach our final stop at Patsos Gorge. At its entrance there is a water infrastructure with constantly running water next to the river. Here there is also a traditional tavern “Drymos” for lunch. An exclusive zoological park will add lots of interest since you can see there all the animals of a Cretan farm.
