If you want to experience the traditional Cretan way of life, then don’t miss the chance to visit Krasi. It is a small village with an altitude of about 600 meters, only 6 km south of Malia. At the highest point of the village there are drinking fountains that were made during the 19th century by locals. However, Krasi is well-known for the plane tree on the main square of the village which, as locals estimate, is more than 2.000 years old and its height almost reaches 15 meters. While keeping cool from the shade of the plane tree, you can enjoy a delicious meal cooked in traditional wood stoves.
