Ramni

Ramni is a village embraced by the White Mountains and located at an altitude of 400 meters.

Ramni belongs to the municipality of Apokoronas. It is 29 km from Chania.

The name of the village is associated to the name of the ancient city “Ramnos or Ramnous”. In the village of Ramni there is a cave called “Chainospilio” (the cave of robbers) in which the persecuted members of the Revolutionary Assembly of 1866 found refuge.

A cave is at a very close distance to Ramni and to Kyriakosellia as well. Inside this cave there is the church of St. Mamas. In this small cavernous church there is also an icon of the Saint, painted on the walls. The residents of the village celebrate St. Mamas on 2 September. During that day, but also the day before, the hospitable locals offer treats to their relatives, to their family friends and to all strangers and visitors as well.

At Ramni and at all traditional cafes of the square, passersby and visitors can enjoy their coffee or their raki ( the traditional Cretan drink) and taste traditional dishes and local delicacies.
