The expert commentary of our sprievodkyne Katky we see Knossos and continued on the náhornu platform Lassithia, where path with expert commentary been exploring two working monasteries (feminine and masculine). On the road ahead and after lunch at the tavern on the plateau, we have from a height of about 920 m above sea level, review the entire plateau, and later on in the village, we viewed the production of hrnčiarsku, where are the master and the owner showed the production of pottery products and for its supervision were some do their own product to commemorate.

Then we continued on to the mountains above the village of higher polhôh, where we have finished jaskynu with a rich equipment (stalagmites, stalagtity), where according to mythology, Zeus was born.

  • 15 August, thousands of pilgrims WALK to the mountain from the road to place candles and bow to the ancient walls. In fact for the day so many people cannot pass, so the monastery open week 24 hours a day. Near walls of monastery in these days there is a mini market, you can buy water and anything bite so as to pass several km and rise to 540 meters above sea level-this is serious. Who do not have the opportunity to go on a small car to drive. In the days of the pilgrimage of the machine may have to throw half a mile from the gate, but there is no way such a cool and nehodâčih of passengers can be planted on a spread near the gate.
