Sissi

Sissi is near to all the places you should see but yet calm and quiet; it is small and hospitable, but full of life! The landscape is well balanced between the sea and the mountains. The sea is warm and calm and there are small, clean and romantic beaches.
There are paths for people who love biking and for those who prefer walking; there are also beautiful village roads with wonderful scenery.
The small and picturesque port of Sisi looks like a big natural swimming pool, ideal for walks by the sea.
On the east side of the village, there are the pebbled beach of Boufos and the small romantic beach of Avlaki. Close to Sissi are located the traditional villages of Vrahassi, Epano Sissi & Milatos.

Milatos

This attractive fishing village is set above a pretty pebbled beach. Milatos is mentioned by Homer as one of the Cretan towns that sent troops to fight in the Trojan War and archaeological evidence suggests that the village had been continually occupied for at least 5000 years.

About 3km east of the village lies the cave of Milatos, where in 1823 an estimated 3000 Cretans were besieged by the Turks. Forced to surrender and promised a safe passage, they were then massacred or taken as slaves. A chapel with a small ossuary commemorates the event.

Vrahassi

The traditional village of Vrahassi is just a few km away from Sissi. Upon entering you will see the village square with its quaint kafenions and food emporioums. Taking a road parallel to the village’s main street, you come upon the interesting old narrow streets of the town. Walking along you will see an old water fountain and several old windmills.

Uphill from this point is a second square which is tree lined and cobble stoned, and is complete with another old sculptured fountain and the town’s famous plane tree. About 3 km from the village there is an important historical monument – an old monastery and a church of Saint George of Vrahasi, with its imposing belfry of original architecture.

Agios Georgios Selinaris

Agios Georgios Selinaris is located on the road to Agios Nikolaos from Sissi. There is a small 16th century church and a monastery which was added on much later. The visitors have also a good chance to observe the hawks and the numerous bird species.

The monastery of Agios Georgios Selinaris.
At the side of the gorge of Selinari, at the 42 km. of the national road Heraklion – Agios Nikolaos, (Only 3,5 km. from Sissi) is the small old chapel and the newly founded monastery of Agios Georgios Selinaris. The small chapel was probably founded early in the 16th century, and ever since it is a place of worshipping. The people passing through the chapel stop to light a candle to the saint.

The chapel is considered miraculous, there are various legends concerning miracles related either with healing of sick people or with divine punishment of people that did not pay the respect due to the saint.
