Azokeramos is a small and quiet agricultural village located at 260 mt. a.s.l. on the slopes of Mount Traòstalos (520 mt.) on the eastern hills of Crete (it had only 14 inhabitants in the 2011 national census, source Wikipedia.gr).
The central part of the village is unfortunately characterized by several abandoned buildings in need of restoration; the countryside that surrounds it is beautiful and well-kept and the three Orthodox churches are also well cared for, from the largest dedicated to Agios Iosif, to the one in the center of the oldest part of the village dedicated to the Virgin Mary (Panagia) up to the small Agios Ioannis in the cemetery at the village entrance.
In Palekastro there are the nearest beaches (Xiona and Kouremenos which are respectively 13,3 km. and 13,8 km.), not much further away are the beach of Kato Zakros (16,1 km.) and the beautiful beaches of the Xerocampos area (16,9 km.).
