Chora Sfakion is the southernmost part of Europe. The natural beauty of the wild, “White Mountains” combined with the deep blue Lybian sea, form a wonderful contrast. Inside the Samaria gorge you may even meet its famous inhabitants, the wild goats of Crete, which the locals call “agrimia” and tourists call “kri-kri”. The rough and dramatic landscape of this area is softened by olive trees, tamarisk and pine trees and the gentle sound of sheep and goats bells. The region is famous for its independent spirit and was the center of resistance against the Venetians and the Turks. The village of Chora Sfakion is a port for those travelling by ferry to Agia Roumeli, Sougia, Paleochora and the unspoilt island of Gavdos.
