    The locals at Anogia organize a great cultural fair every year, from the 1st - 4th July. The name of the fair is "Iakinthia" to honor St. Iakinthos and his celebration on 3rd July. During "Iakinthia" there are many events organized at Anogia such as concerts, plays, music nights and art exhibitions.

    Little church models along roads

    During my stay on Crete Island often small models of churches fell into my eyes. As I heard these are placed along the road by relatives of people who had an accident. So partly they are there to remember those who died, but also to thank if they survived. in case that is not correct, please let me know...
