Picturesque Villages in Crete


Amariano Fountain
(1 Vote)

The small village of Amariano in the province Pediada is known for its picturesque alleys, the square with the old plane tree and the traditional coffee shops. In the square there is the old fountain of 1898 and a cistern, where the visitor can drink the water of the spring that comes from the mountain area of Afentis Christos in Dikti Range.

In the same square there is the war memorial of Amariano people and the church of Agia Paraskevi, where we can see an embedded capital (apparently coming from Ancient Lyktos). According to the tradition, the temple was built here to protect the inhabitants from the evil spirits living at the spring.
