Trail Detailed Description

We pass through Ano Varsamonero (1) and follow a southerly direction for 500 m, until the village of Monopari (2). From the village square, we follow a dirt road in an easterly direction for approximately 600 m, and then take the northern branch of the road, ignoring any secondary ones. After about 900 m of walking, we come to a group of houses (3).

This section of the route passes through a landscape with picturesque views; to Psiloritis towards the east, and to Lefka Ori towards the west.

After 400 m we reach an asphalt road (4).

We follow the right-hand (eastern) branch for approximately 1 km, until the village of Kastellos (5)

From Kastellos, we follow the asphalt road east of the village, for about 800 m, and then turn left to a dirt road (6), which passes through an oak forested area in a northerly direction, for approximately 900 m; we then come to an olive grove, on the right-hand side of the road. At the end of the olive grove we turn right (7) in a south-easterly direction, and after about 200 m we arrive at the entrance of the archaeological site of the Armeni (8) Late Minoan cemetery.

From this point, we can continue following the asphalt road until the village of Armeni, which lies 1,5 km to the south
