A tour in Potamies and around


In order to visit the region of Lagkada, you need to take the provincial road from Hersonissos to the plateau of Lasithi. The route to the first settlement of "Potamies" is very pleasant and interesting. At the beginning you will cross tourist facilities, such as golf courses, and a water park. As you proceed, another magical landscape is revealed. On your right you will see the remains of the ancient aqueduct and the entrance of the gorge of "Aposelemis". Just before you reach the settlement, you will see a street sign to the two Byzantine temples of the region, the church of "Sotiras Christos" and "Panaghia Gouverniotissa".


The main settlement of "Potamies" is built on the north bank of the gorge of "Aposelemis". In the settlement of "Potamies" you will find nice cafes to take a break, and there is also a little bridge where you can see the river flow during the winter, and an animal farm open to visitors.
