Explore Agios Nikolaos City by Night

Description

Agios Nikolaos, is topographically unique to the rest of Crete because its built on three hills surrounding a lagoon which, since 1867, has been connected to the harbor by way of a narrow channel. The town itself surrounds the lake. Agios Nikolaos is the patron saint of sailors, and of Greece itself.

The Gulf of Mirabello, on which the town is sited, was named, they say, during the Venetian Occupation (1204-1669) by an Italian ruler who, looking down from the surrounding mountains declared "Mira bello!-" Beautiful sight! And he was right.

Agios Nikolaos is an exceptionally beautiful, self-contained little town, and one of the most popular destinations in Crete. All in all, this picturesque place is ideal for photographers and painters.
