EtiÓ

the "ghost" village,

with its two beautiful churches (one dedicated to Agios Ioannis and the second to the Virgin and Agia Ekaterini) and the Venetian Villa Demezzo

(a manor dating back to the sixteenth century that of its three original floors preserves nowadays only one) however well restored and enhanced few years ago,

is a small uninhabited village totally immersed in olives and placed in an area very rich in greenery and vineyards; here you will find traditional Cretan houses and these of EtiÓ, even if they were abandoned in the'70s and now in ruins, retain a particular charm.

 

A few hundred meters lower, continuing on the road to Papagiannades, you will reach a crossroads that right leads to a church dedicated to the Saints Fanurios and Panteleimonas (for the first a popular legend says that whoever loses an object, whatever kind it may be, can come here and ask the grace of the Saint to find it!).

EtiÓ is located :

  • 40 minutes drive from Xerocampos in direction Ziros, HandrÓs and Armeni

  • 32 minutes drive from Sitia in direction PapagiannÓdes, SikiÓ and PiskokÚfalo

  • 21 minutes drive from Makrýgialos in direction Lithýnes and AnÓlipsi
