Vamos

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  Crete  /  Chania Prefecture  /  Apokoronas  /  Vamos
Vamos is a small town and former municipality in the Chania regional unit, Crete, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Apokoronas, of which it is a municipal unit. It is located 26km from Chania in north west Crete, and is the chief settlement of the Apokoronas area.The area around Vamos is a lush landscape a few kilometres from the coast. Very much a working village, many tourists nevertheless visit or stay in the village and in the surrounding villages of Gavalochori and Kalyves. There is much infrastructure in the village including the town hall of the Vamos municipality that covers several other villages, a large medical centre, the court and the high school for the region, and several restaurants, snack bars and shops, largely serving the local community.Below the modern town square at the top of the hill is old Vamos. Here a group of locals set up Vamos SA, an enterprise devoted to preserving local buildings and customs and attracting a sustainable form of tourism. Several of the old houses have been rebuilt as tourist accommodation. There is a well-regarded taverna – the Cistern of the Bloumosifi – as well as an art gallery, a café and a general store selling local products.Vamos' population is estimated at 600.
