Gorges & Ravines


Chalasse or Sassalou

  It is another gorge of Kissamos, wonderful to the nature lovers and mountaineers, located in an intact natural environment.
  It starts from the village of Sasalos in Kissamos at an altitude of 340 m (57 km from Chania), where you come to via the Chania-Nopigia-Koleni-Rokka-Sfakopigadi-Malathyro-Sasalo route.
  After walking for maximum 4 hours in the main portion of the gorge, you reach the village of Malathyro (at an altitude of 315m and a distance of 48 km from Chania). If you walk for one more hour you can also reach the village of Voulgaro in Kissamos, 7 km distant from the town of Kissamos.

Venetian Villa

About 3km out of town there are signs to the Venetian Villa Trevisan. This very beautiful, crumbling structure is between the old road and the new road, outside the village proper. The picture of the villa Trevisan is used on the cover of the book by Giuseppe Gerola (an Italian historical photographer who visited Crete in 1902), on the Venetian remains of Crete.

Religious monuments

Agia Varvara Church

  In Voulgaro there is a sign southwest to Mouri. After 1,700 metres there is a right turn to Latsiana. Latsiana is a secluded place on the west side of a hill and has a spectacular view of the valley. It has high trees, vegetation and fresh water springs. In Latsiana there are the remains of the Byzantine church of Agia Varvara dating from the fifteenth century. The church was a three-aisled basilica with a large dome. The church has been built using materials from an ancient temple that was on this site. The location of the church is superb, with a small but beautiful place to sit under the trees nearby and a commanding view of the valley below.
