Azogires north of Paleochora in Crete

Azogires is a tiny village about 6 kilometres northeast of Paleochora in southern Crete. If you stay in Paleochora, and enjoy walking, I think you should drive up here. Most hiking trails in Crete are in gorges, but here you walk in the beautiful and interesting countryside, in and around a village.

Azogires is an extremely peaceful village (also known as Paradise Village) and a place surrounded by nice hiking trails, interesting churches and caves. There are rooms for rent and two tavernas. Alfa Café is the best of them. It also serves as a café, and as a information centre for the area. The very nice owner of Alfa Café calls himself Lucky. He knows everything about the area and organizes guided walking tours in the area.
