The rocks of this gorge were used as burial grounds in the Minoan times and that is how the gorge got its name. The area is ideal for trekking and it takes about two hours to cross it. The gorge leads from Zakros to Kato Zakros.

The Minoan Palace of Zakros was discovered in 1961, but works had started many decades before. The palace has a central courtyard, labirynth corridors and many rooms, while a corridor connected it to the port. A small town surrounded the palace.

One of my favourite coastlines, the spectacularly stony and stunning Plaka, pure paradise!

In the early morning hours, when many of us are cursing - oops! - I mean, hitting -  the snooze button for a few more precious minutes of sleep, before facing tedious traffic on the ride to work, this fisherman in Agios Nikolaos, Crete, has just finished his shift, and quietly docks his boat next to the only other vessel on the shore, until his next traffic-free trip out to sea.
Seaside dining, is in itself, very appetizing, but so are the views from Plaka. In the distance, the island of Spinalonga, the Venetian fortress that subsequently became a leper colony in 1903.

Freshly caught octopus, a Cretan specialty, is offered by most seaside taverns, like this one in the fishing village of Plaka.
