The Municipal District of Ahlada is 23 km away from Heraklion.
It is a mountainous area at an average altitude of 189m. The settlement of Ahlada
which is situated on top of the hill that dominates Agia Pelagia, is a model of
a farming settlement. In spite of an interesting old part and the astonishing
view, a shift of the productive activity of the inhabitants towards the coastline
of the Municipal District has been noted.
Τhe entire area is characterized by smooth hills where olive groves
are dominant while at the bays of Agia
Pelagia and Lygaria
there are sandy beaches for swimming and tourism activities are dominant. The
sea and the morphology of the ground on the hills are deemed to be the most significant
factors of the district, which has resulted in the upgrading of the tourist product
provided. Agia Pelagia, Lygaria, Palaiokastro
are deemed to be amongst the most beautiful tourist areas of our Municipality
which attracts thousands of tourists, Greeks and foreigners every summer and they
have been developed into resort centers.
