Geropotamos River
(3 votes)

Geropotamos, the sacred river of the Minoans, gathers the water of Mesara Plain and exits inside the military airport of Tymbaki, close to Kokkinos Pirgos. The coastline south of Kokkinos Pyrgos has several places where small ponds of foremost ecological importance are formed, with the nicest being at the area of Pahia Ammos (or Afratias), which can be accessed through dirt track.

As Cristoforo Buondelmonti refers in the description of the island of Crete (1415), when he embarked near the exit of the river, he saw the ruins of a small town, which today is not distinct.
