Lassithi Plateau, Lasithi Prefecture
(4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
A fertile plateau that produces some of Crete's olive oil, Lassithi Plateau features white-sailed windmills extending above the valleys. Explore the area to find some early versions of these windmills scattered among old ruins of farms and towns. A memorial here commemorates the destruction of many of these villages during the Ottoman and Egyptian attacks of the 19th century. One of the best ways to tour the plateau's sites is by car; rental cars are available throughout the island.

  • Very nice place over land and sea in the distance. Great view of one of the highest points of Crete. You will see a Museum and old Cretan mills. Some sculptures on the square in front of the Museum, and if you are lucky that it is not too hot, not too bad, you will have the pleasure of admiring the landscape far, far away.

  • In my opinion you can expect here not too much. And may be even less impressed by the images with the many windmills. These mills are here already longer no longer - at least no more with their white sails, as they are shown in the pictures. Still, it was a beautiful hike that led us here. Only unfortunately just not so extremely impressive...
