What to Know Before Visiting Christos village

Apartments and hotels in Christos village from Crete Island

Christos is a charming village located on the west mountain slopes of Dikti, at an altitude of 550 m above sea level and just 2 km from the village of Malles. The village is known for its stunning natural beauty, with many running waters and lush greenery. Its narrow cobblestone alleyways and gentle slopes have helped to preserve its traditional character over time.

According to legend, the first settlers of Christos were inspired to settle in the village after witnessing a light every evening at the exact spot where they later chose to build their homes. They later found a holy icon of Christ in some nearby shrubs, which they took as a sign from above and named their village after.

The village has a rich history dating back to the 11th century, with evidence of an ancient Byzantine building and the once-bustling town of Ancient Malla nearby. The church of Transfiguration, built in the 18th century, is located south of the village and was constructed on top of the ancient building. Excavations have unearthed many intriguing finds, including inscriptions, buildings, mosaics, and tombs, as well as artefacts honouring Zeus.

The Selekanos Plateau, located in the Local Department of Christos, is a must-visit for those exploring the area. It boasts Crete’s largest uninterrupted pine forest, as well as the Saint Eustace Church, Panagia Selakaniotissa shrine, Stella’s coffeehouse, and a private events hall associated with the Cultural Association of Selakanos. The area is also home to finely crafted stone mansions belonging to residents from nearby Christos town who flock here during summer months to indulge in its beauty.

The Selakano gorge is another popular attraction in the region, known for its remarkable trails to Afentis and Lazaros peaks. Visitors can also enjoy the region’s delectable Green Beans, served with wild goat, which make for a truly exquisite dish.

Overall, a visit to Christos and its surrounding area is a must for those seeking to escape into the picturesque Cretan landscape and enjoy an array of natural wonders amidst wonderfully varying optical contrasts. It’s no wonder that Ierapetra is known as the deified region of Crete!
