Mount Ida - Skinakas Observatory

Skinakas Observatory is located on a small plateau behind Mount Ida and the snow-covered Psiloritis.

It can also be reached via a winding road, off of the route to the plateau of Anogia Nida.

In the cloudy December sky other mountain peaks look like islands.

When the weather is clear you can see the North and the South coast of Crete from here - at the same time.
