There is much to discover on the island of Crete

Servili Tilissou is a large village that you will find as you move up the mountain sides of Psiloritis on the Greek island of Crete. This is a village with about 1000 permanent residents and it is close to the sea and a location that you are sure to love.

One of the best things you can do in the village is visit the Minoan villas, these are famous locations and there are three of them in the village. If you want to see the remains of the Minoan Palace, you should head about 10 kilometres outside the village to a place called Sklavokambos, the palace dates back to 200BC.

This Greek island is famous for its many archaeological sites of interest, but you will also be able to enjoy relatively more modern architecture in the form of the many villages on the island. They are all beautiful and unique and resemble a very traditional Cretan style of construction. If you are interested in learning about the farming history of the island, then you should visit the Agricultural History and Art Museum.

It can also be a good idea to visit the nearby monastery, Aghios Panteleimonas, which is just three kilometres from the town of Gonies, which is 12 kilometres from Servili Tilissou. One of the reasons that Crete is so popular is because of its numerous caves, which any visitors should take time to explore while they are here. One of the most impressive sets of caves in the region is located just east of Marathos. These are the Doxa caves which have some very interesting features.

Once you have done so much exploring of the local area you are sure to be hungry. This is no problem and there are many fantastic cafes and taverns in the area serving up wonderful local food which you are sure to enjoy.
