Tonight, the people of Anogeia are honored to welcome you. It is a great thing in life for people to come together. Aristeidis Hairetis or Gialafatis

Anogeia is a predominantly mountainous Municipality, occupying the central part of Mt. Psiloritis. It borders with the Municipality of Mylopotamos in the northwest, the Municipality of Malevizi in the east, the Municipalities of Gortyna and Phaistos in the south and the Municipality of Amari in the southwest. The central municipal unit is the historic town of Anogeia. The total area of the Municipality covers 104,860.55 stremmas (2,591,161 acres), most of which is classified as forest land with some of the largest forest complexes (mainly of kermes oaks) on Crete.

The wider area of the Municipality of Anogeia, which also includes the hamlet of Sisarcha, is famous for its wild flora and fauna, as well as its centuries old cultural heritage elements of exceptional interest spanning a period from the Minoan times to date.


The memory of humanity is the mountains... And this mountain here has much to remember. But how can one make the mountain speak... How to describe what your soul hears when you wander and tread.

Poetry, music...

Thus they have tried, for centuries now, those who spoke with this land.

But the air cannot be described. Nor the flight of the bird. Nor the smell of the damp earth.

These images here are nothing else but small and fleeting glimpses of this wonder. What can one catch sight of in the light of lightning... Specks small from the infinite mosaic of the world... Imprints on the mountain of God, on one of the mountains He chose to bless.

On our own Psiloritis!
