It is worth visiting the church of Aghios Ioannis,
built in the 16th century, and renovated a few times afterwards, as well
as the ruins of the three-aisled basilica of the 6th century; some of
the finds of this church are exhibited in the Heraklion Museum.
It is also worth seeing the Agricultural Folk Museum, housed in an oil mill of
the mid 19th century; the building has been restored and renovated by the Society
of Cretan Historic Studies and there are presented professional activities of
the past as a traditional oil-mill, a cooper's workshop, a carpenter's workshop,
a forge and other traditional activities. The Museum has also a rich collection
of various traditional instruments and a good collection of photographs from
the early and mid 20th century.
Many hotels of all categories, studios and rooms in traditional restored
mansions and rooms to let are available for accommodation. You will enjoy
food and drink in the restaurants, taverns and traditional cafes of Piskopiano
and of the nearby Koutouloufari. And, if you can't miss swimming and
sea sports, all the beaches of Chersonissos are waiting for you.
Access from Heraklion is very easy, by public bus with frequent service,
taxi and rented or private cars and motorbikes.
