Bride of the Libyan Sea

Ierapetra, Europe's southernmost city, sits on Crete's southwestern coastline and draws attention with its mild weather and award-winning beaches. Facing the African coast, the town counts among the world's sunniest holiday resorts, offering a growing number of foreign travelers a blend of rich history and modern tourist attractions. The seafront area remains the town's busiest district, packed with taverns, restaurants, and shops. Away from the shore you can explore the relics of the island's Venetian past, including a 13th-century fortress built to protect Ierapetra's harbor. Ierapetra is in Lasithi Prefecture.
