What to Know Before Visiting Kalo Chorio Village

Apartments and hotels in Kalo Chorio Village from Crete Island

Kalo Chorio is a village located 25.7 km from Heraklion, Greece, at a height of 320m above sea level. It is situated at the crossroads at km 16.7 on the National Road to Agios Nikolaos and on the road to Gouves-Koxare-Kalo Chorio. The village was previously known as Stravorina, as mentioned in old documents. However, the present name was given in the decade 1830-1840. The village had 298 inhabitants in 1981, which remains the current population.

The Maza hilltop, southeast of the village, is 457 metres high and is believed to have been a town from the 10th to the 8th c. BC. The highest part of the hill was used as a shrine in the Middle-Minoan years, and clay figurines and offerings were found there. The shrine lay quite close to the town and stopped being used in Proto-Geometric years. Archaeologists, including N. Platon, believe that the name Maza comes from pre-Hellenic years and means Mother Earth.

Traces of ancient installations have also been found northeast of the village, by the country road that leads from Kasteli to Hersonissos. Remnants of water tanks by a source that is still in use today have been discovered, which probably belonged to the Hersonissos aqueduct. Parts of the aqueduct are still visible today in Aposelemi valley. Additionally, there is an interesting gorge close to Kalo Chorio, in the valley of Aposselemis river, which is worth seeing for nature lovers.
