A small picturesque village by the sea characterized as a landscape of exquisite, natural beauty. With joyful and peaceful inhabitants who constantly tease each other. It is located in Crete, north of Lasithi prefecture, between Agios Nikolaos and Sitia, at equal distance (30-35km) from the three major cities(Agios Nikolaos, Sitia, Ierapetra).

The small island, opposite the village, with the small church of Agios Nikolaos, offers a unique beauty to the landscape.
United with the land, in antiquity it hosted a great civilization, which originates from 3000 BC. The excavations, which started in 1908 by Richard Seager and continue until today by a group of Greek and American archaeologists, with Prof. Jef Soles in head of it, revealed unique archeological findings, which adorn the museums of Sitia, Agios Nikolaos and Heraklion.
