Church of Panagia at Rouma
(1 Vote)

Near the villages Alagni and Patsideros of Heraklion, on a low hill, lies the deserted village of Rouma. We do not know when it was founded, but it is referred in the census of 1630. Rouma in the Cretan dialect means stream and is taken after the stream next to the village, where a spring with fresh water flows all year round.

Next to the spring, in a small oak grove, we meet the small chapel of the Virgin Mary with some very old frescoes surviving in good condition.
