Mountains of Crete


Sitiaka is a low mountain range of Eastern Crete covering most of the province Sitia and are the Natural Park of Sitia, which belongs to the UNESCO Geopark Network. Along with the small mountain ranges of Orno and Thrypti, they cover the largest mountainous part of the region east of Ierapetra.

The highest peak of the Sitia Mountains is Plagia (817m) in the area of Zakros and their core is the region of Karidi with dozens of caves. Despite their low altitude, crossing Sitiaka by car, due to its intense geographic features, is tiring.
