The Katholiko Gorge

When the thermometer shows no more than 25 degrees, a two- to three-hour hike from the monastery of Gouverneto down to the abandoned rock monastery of Katholiko and then through the gorge of the same name to the sea is one of the most beautiful experiences in western Crete.

The beautiful gorge on the Akrotiri peninsula near Chania is no more than 1 km long and opens into a small bay with a rocky shore.
