Agiofarago Gorge

The walk through the Holy Gorge of Agiofarago is easy and short. The gorge belongs to the property of the Monastery of Odigitrias. It is one of the shortest gorges and brings you to a beautiful pebble beach which is surrounded by high cliffs. In the past hermits were living here in the different caves of the gorge.

Inside the Agiofarago Gorge

At the beach of Agiofarago and in the gorge itself you often see climbers! It is the most southern climbing area of Crete and is known for its very sharp rocks.  Most of the routes are inside the gorge, with the oldest ones situated on the beach or near the beach. Here there are some of the most difficult routes in Crete!
