On the northern side of the White Mountains and just 20 kilometers away from the town of Chania there is a mountainous paradise.
The town of Eleftherna was founded by the Dorians around the 9th century BC and was inhabited up to the early Byzantine years. This is due to its strategic location at an altitude of 380m, crossed by the roads that connected the ancient Cydonia, Knossos and Mount Psiloritis. The findings so far have been discovered in three different positions of the same hill.
Our walk begins from near the village of Voleones as we ascend to Veni monastery, or the monastery of St. Anthony.
