Yamas! 20 Tradional kafenions in Apokoronas
In Crete you can find many traditional villages. Some of them are inhabited by just a handful of people and others are crowded and lively. What they almost all have in common is that they have at least one kafenion! A kafenion is the meeting point in the village for a drink as well as for socializing!
Although many kafenions have gradually disappeared, still there are quite some unique ones to visit! It is absolutely worthwhile to taste a Greek coffee, frappe or raki, meet the locals and experience the village life!
In Apokoronas region we have selected 20 special locations where you find these kafenions! Of course there are much more, so we had a ‘difficult’ task (and research) to make this selection! With this little booklet you have the opportunity to discover some of these traditional kafenions. For each village (indicated on the map), we also give local tips about what to do or visit. Enjoy discovering these lovely places!
