Learn more about this Hiking Crete Tour
Yuchtas is located west of Archanes, about 10km south of Heraklion. It is a small lonely mountain with a maximum height of 811m, but it holds a special place in the heart of the Cretans. It is located in a unique landscape surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, north of the valleys of central Heraklion, west of Archanes and east of the valley of Giofyros Potamos. In antiquity it was a sacred mountain, mainly because its northwestern face strongly reminds of a human face looking at the sky.
