What to Know Before Visiting Petrokefalo village

Apartments and hotels in Petrokefalo village from Crete Island

Petrokéfalo is a small village located 16km from Heraklion and 3km from Agios Myron, situated at an altitude of 340m above sea level. The village has a population of 248 inhabitants and is built on a rocky hillside that resembles a human head, which is believed to be the reason behind its name, petrokefali, meaning stone head. The settlement was fortified and has recently revealed significant ancient findings. The village celebrates its patron Saint, Agia Paraskevi, on the 8th of September with a village feast in her honour.

There are different versions of the origin of the village’s name. One suggests that it comes from the shape of the hill that resembles a human head, while another claims that it was named after a person named Petros, who was the owner of the hill and the first resident of the area. Despite the uncertainty surrounding its name, Petrokéfalo remains a charming village with a rich history and cultural heritage.
