Lasíthi Plateau : Michelin's recommendations
The road from Limáni Hersoníssou winds its way up the slope offering spectacular views down over the Avdoú Valley. At the entrance to Potamiés stands a tiny church in the Venetian Gothic style; the interior is decorated with 14C frescoes. The little 9C monastery of Kardiotíssa (prior to the village of Kerá) also contains well-preserved 14C frescoes and a holy door (c 1500), forming part of the iconostasis. At the highest point there is a row of corn mills, one of which is still in use.
