Apeiranthos Village

1 hour

Apeiranthos (or T’Aperathou) is a pretty village on the slops of Mount Fanari at 650 metres altitude and was supposed to have originally been settled by Cretans. The architectural design of the houses in Apeiranthos has remained almost untouched since the time of the Venetian Empire: narrow marble paved mule tracks, often covered by archways.

The village has four museums: the Archaeological Museum of Apeiranthos, the Museum of Folk Art, the Geological Museum, and the Museum of Natural History.

Amenities include mini-markets, taverns, cafe, pharmacy (750m before the entrance of the village or 450m walking through the village).
