La région de Sfakia - une galerie de photos - Page 1

La région de Sfakia s'étend environ d'Agia Roumeli jusqu'à Frangokastello le long de la côte Sud de la Crète. Cliquez ici pour voir une carte.

Au Nord elle s'étend jusque dans les Montagnes Blanches. Sfakia est restée une des régions les plus traditionnelles de la Crète et ses habitants sont fiers et indépendants. La plupart des touristes n'en connaissent que les régions côtières (Agia Roumeli, Loutro, Hora Sfakion) mais la plus grande partie de la région consiste de montagnes.

Cette galerie ne contient pas beaucoup de photos des montagnes. Vous pourrez les trouver sur Les Montagnes Blanches en été ainsi que Les Montagnes Blanches en hiver.

Cette première page commence par les villages d'Anopolis et d'Aradena.

  • Daskalogiannis (Teacher Giannis) was born in Anopolis and lead an uprising against the Turks in 1770. The uprising failed and he surrendered to the Turks in order to stop the destruction of the region of Sfakia. He was executed on the 17th of June 1771 in the square at the eastern gate of Heraklion by skinning him alive

  • The old path crossing the gorge of Aradena. There are several paths crossing the gorge at different points but this is the main one. It is very well built, very ancient (thousands of years) and well worth a walk on it even if now you can cross easily using the bridge. This type of paved path is often referred to as "kalderimi' (plural 'kalderimia') which is derived from the Turkish word 'kalderim' which not unsurprisingly means 'path'.
