The village of Lendas is 73km southeast of Heraklion, on the south coast of Crete.
The name Lendas comes from the word lion (leondas) because the peninsula has the shape of a lion seen from high up. Lendas is an ancient Greek and Roman site, and has Byzantine churches of interest. It is also an anchorage point on the south coast of Crete.
