Agia Pelagia - Evresi chapel on the beach

Agia Pelagia holiday resort Crete Island GREECE

Agia Pelagia is a seaside fishing village built in the centre of a picturesque amphitheatric bay, it is located on the north coast of Crete at 23 km northwest from Heraklion (Herakleion), capital city of the Island of Crete and distants 25 km from the international airport of Heraklion and 23 from the ferry port.

Agia Pelagia takes its name from the homonymous church, in the Monastery of the Sebbathians, ruins of which are found at a distance of 1 km west of the village. During the last decades years, the resort has known a big tourist development, as its sandy beaches attract many visitors who find here all kinds of services. From Agia Pelagia you can visit the post-minoan graves and the University (Pritanion) of the 4th century B.C. which were found in 1970 at the site Kladistos (or Kladotos/Kladissos) and support the view that this was the site of the ancient city of Apollonia. Worth visiting is also the nearby cave (chapel), with the name "Evresi", where - according to legend - local people found the icon of Agia Pelagia (Santa Marina)

In the village you can find many taverns, offering traditional but also international dishes, bars, cafes, shops and boutiques, which will invite you to exciting short walks through the little streets.
