Vrisses, Chania Crete

30 kilometers far from Chania at the Southeast, just 2 kilometers off the National Road to Rethymnonn it is found Vrysses, a beautiful village with 850 permanent residents, built in a valley full of trees, luxuriant vegetation and running water.

It is worth visiting the area, as the nearby typically Cretan small villages, off the main destinations of tourists, give a more authentic image of the Cretan traditional village and its people.

Just at the junction with the national road, there is the “Elliniki Kamara”, a Greco - Roman bridge, with features from more recent periods, Venetian and Ottoman.

A few churches both in Vrysses and in the villages around it are also worth seeing.

Two local feasts (“panyghyri”) take place on the 7 th of July, in honor of Aghia Kyriaki, at Vrysses, and on the 15 th of August in honor of the Assumption of Virgin Mary at Alicambos.

Only a few rooms are available for lodging in Vrysses, but eating there can be a real pleasure; small taverns and cafes at the shade of the trees offer traditional Cretan dishes; what is more interesting is that the village is known for the good quality milk products, so you should expect to taste gorgeous cheese and yoghurt.

Access to Vrysses is possible by public bus and rented or private car and motorbike. For those who wish to visit the villages of the area a private means is necessary.
