Hiking Syrikari Polyrinia

From the village of Sirikari, beside the hill from the top of which a tiny church overlooks the Polirinia Gorge, we descend a slightly steep slope covered with large stones. Our route, then, leads down the narrow path parallel to the stream that carves out the gorge. After a 40-minute walk we will have a short stop to rest in the shade, on the edge of the stream. A little while later, we exit the gorge and follow a sandy path for the last short ascent of a hill before entering Polirinia village.

Having satisfied our palates and quenched our thirst we slowly head up the road to visit the ancient city of Polirinia. The gorge was certainly an example of the unique Cretan natural landscape, but now we also have an opportunity to explore a piece of the island’s rich history as we wander among the ruins. The panoramic view from the top of the hill is spectacular, and explains partly why the ancient city was built here.
