The Greco-Roman bridge in Vrises is on the Vrisakos River, east of the town, at the exit of Vrises towards Rethimnon, under the new highway. The location is known by the name Elliniki Kamara (Greek Arch) and is beside a church north of the road into Vrises. The bridge, usable today, is made of dry stone covered with pebbles and stands 6.4 metres above the river.

The river Vrisakos flows through the village and forms a shallow (very
shallow in the summer!) stream frequented by ducks.
A monument of a Cretan fighter in the centre of the village commemorates
the revolt of 1897 that led to the autonomy of Crete.
