Loutro - The Minoan Ruins

Loutro is merely accessible on foot or by boat. The water is very clear, deep blue and up until mid-July cool and very refreshing.

Loutro like no other village of Crete remind of the film "Alexis Sorbas".

In fact, various scenes of the movie have been shot on the other side of the bay during the archeological excavations of Phoenix and the village Livaniana.

At the right verge of the village there is an excavation from the early Minoan Period.
