map of Crete showing the location of Vrahassi

vrahassiThe traditional village of Vrahassi is just a few kilometres east from Sissi.

Upon entering Vrahassi from the east (the old national road between Agios Nikolaos and Heraklion), you'll see the village square with its quaint kafeneion and food emporiums.

Taking a road parallel to the village's main street, you come upon the interesting old narrow streets of the town. Walking along, you will see an old water fountain and several old windmills.

Uphill from this point is a second square which is tree-lined and cobble-stoned, and is complete with another old sculptured fountain and the town's famous plane tree.

About 3 kilometres from Vrahassi there is an important historical monument - an old monastery and the church of St. George of Vrahassi, with its imposing belfry of original architecture.
