Gergeri



The village of Gergeri is 40km southwest of Iraklion on the Iraklion - Agia Varvara - Gergeri road. There are three interesting Byzantine churches in the area.
This is the first village, 10km after Agia Varvara to the west. There are natural springs, and from one of the large springs water was channelled to Gortyn through an aqueduct which is still visible near the Acropolis of Gortyn. There is also a lush forest near the village and Byzantine churches.
