Asterousia Mountains

Asterousia Mountains are the southernmost range in Greece, located on the south side of Heraklion Prefecture. It is a narrow range, shaped between Messara plain and the Libyan Sea. Starting on the east at Tsoutsouras, it ends in the tip of Messara.

Jiouchtas Mountain

Jiouchtas is located west of Archanes, about 10km south of Heraklion. It's a small mountain with a maximum height of 811m, but it occupies a special position in the heart of the Cretans and that’s why we mention it here.
