Kerames

The village Kerames is located approximately 50 km south of the city of Rethymno, near the settlement of Agalianos in the prefecture of Rethymno.

The village of Kerames is built on a slope of the mountain Asiderota and offers an endless view at the Libyan Sea.

Generally, the Kerames is a traditional village with island architecture and centuries-long history, which starts from the Pre-Minoan years. Near the village and beside the Pyrgos beach, the city ruins of ancient Kionia dating to 2600-2000 BC were found.

From the picturesque cobblestone alleys of the Kerames village to the main square do not forget to help yourself with cool water from the founts of the village and enjoy your coffee with the hospitable villagers in one of the cafes.

The seafront, which begins north of the village Akoumia, is called Keramiani Gyalia (=beach of Kerames), while south of the village, you will find many beaches, such as the Ligkres beach, the beach of Triopetra and Agios Pavlos dunes.

The main church of Kerames is Agios Spyridonas, which hosts the most wonderful carved wooden iconostasis.
