Imbros Gorge

Imbros Gorge
Imbros Gorge
The Imbros Gorge starts just south of the village. During World War II, twelve thousand soldiers evacuated the island walking through the gorge to the south coast of Crete under aeroplane fire. There they were taken by the Royal Navy to Egypt.
The Imbros Gorge is very narrow in certain parts, with impressive walls. There is unique flora all year round. It is 11km long, takes 4 to 4 1/2 hours to walk and ends in the village of Komitades.
