History of the area
Ramni Municipal District consists of Ramni, Kyriakosellia and Chiliomoudou villages.Ramni, along with its settlements, is one of the 34 villages of Apokoronas province. According to Scheiber, the name Ramni derives from ancient Ramnos.
Ramni is a picturesque village with hospitable inhabitants. Guests may enjoy their coffee or local delights in the village’s colourful cafes. The monument of National Resistance at the village’s square stands as a witness to its history. The village’s school, no longer in use, will soon serve as a Museum of Narrative History and Cultural Activities. Kyriakosellia village has to a large extent maintained its traditional Cretan architecture. A cave with a holy icon depicting Agios Mamas and a byzantine fortress in Kasteli are at a small distance away. The ruins of an old settlement, as well as a smaller koules are also worth visiting, along with Pontikospilo (Mouse cave) and several smaller caves. The temple of Agios Nikolaos, one of the most beautiful byzantine churches in Crete, built in the 10th century A.D. has been preserved to this day. In Chiliomoudou guests will have the chance to visit the church of Agios Konstantinos and Eleni. The valley of Apokoronas with its villages
Souda bay and Akrotiri, Almyros bay down to Rethymno unwind before the eyes of the guests. Northeast of Chania Municipality, guests will come across one of the five provinces of the prefecture, Apokoronas province. Apokoronas covers an area of 313 km2 (98 lowland, 103 semi-mountainous 112 mountainous areas) and numbers 34 traditional villages with 12,623 inhabitants (2001 census). TerrainApokoronas’ geographic location is important, considering it is a “bridge” connecting Chania with Crete’s other prefectures. Its largest part is covered both in wild and in tamed vegetation, extending from the feet of the White Mountains to Souda bay northwest and to Georgioupolis bay northeast. There are two capes in Apokoronas: Souda and Drapanos, five rivers (Kiliaris, Xydias or Xydes, Vryssanos or Boutakas, Almyros and Delfinas) and one lake, Kournas lake, the only lake in Crete. GuestsApokoronas province could be ideal for guests that wish to combine their vacation with mountain hiking and walks along the seashore, an experience offered by Crete in a unique and most harmonious way.
Guests will come across picturesque villages hinged on steep slopes, impressing with their vivid local colours and highlighting Crete’s splendour and majestic spirit, while seaside villages with organized beaches will offer guests the comfort of contemporary lifestyle. Remarkable canyons, such as Diktamos canyon (starting from Katohori, Keramia and ending near Stylos), Agios Nikolas-Kanali canyon (between Ramni and Machera) and Asi Gonia canyon generously unfold Crete’s natural beauty. 213 recorded caves with historical and environmental value, steep beaches and byzantine churches are there to meet the different likings and demands of all tourists that will surely leave this place with a sweet remembrance and a promise that they will soon be back. There is evidence of human presence in Apokoronas since the Neolithic Period, i.e. 8-6,000 years b.C. Archaeological remains have been discovered in Melidoni and a settlement of the same period has been unearthed halfway between the villages of Samonas and Stylos.Late-Minoan tombs with numerous jars have been discovered under Aptera, a majestic domed tomb, the ruins of a ceramic kiln and other remains dating back to the same age were found near Stylos and an arched tomb and other remarkable finds of the same era have been unearthed near Fylaki village.ApteraJust 7.5 km away from Almyrida on the road to Chania, guests will come across Aptera and its panoramic view to Souda bay that is not to be missed out. Aptera was founded in the 7th century b.C. and was still inhabited as late as the byzantine years, being one of the most important towns of ancient Crete that often had a leading part to play in the island’s historical events, including its domestic and foreign policy. The town was named after its founder king Apteras or Pteras that in turn owes his name to the battle between the Muses and the Sirens, which resulted in the defeat of the Sirens; Sirens then cast away their wings (in Greek ftera), they became aptere (wingless) and lefke (i.e. white) and they fell into the sea, thereby causing the emergence of Lefke islands in Souda bay. In Aptera, guests will be able to see the walls of the ancient city, 4 km of which have survived, a small temple dating back to the beginning of the 1st century b.C. (probably dedicated to Demetra), a small Roman theatre with rock-carved rows (the concave, the orchestra and remains of seats can be distinguished) and the large impressive domed tanks dating back to the Roman era. The area’s sightseeing also includes the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian. South of the monastery, excavations have revealed the floor of a Christian temple dating back to the 7th or 8th century A.D. , including Christian tombs underneath. Aptera was independent throughout the Hellenistic era (6th-4th century b.C.) and issued many coins. The city sent help to the Spartans during the Second Messenian war (668 b.C.) and was an ally of Knossos during the civil war of Cretan cities (220 b.C) .Two fortresses of immense historical interest built during the Ottoman occupation survive near the antiquities; one is “Palekastro” or “Koules Apteron”, which was built by the Turks on occasion of the revolution of 1866, a representative sample of 19th century Fortress Architecture; the second one is "Fort Itzedin" at Kalami, which was built in 1872 by Reuf Pascha at the same spot that in 1646 the first Turks had built a Tower after defeating the Venetians. The Fort of Itzedin was the port’s most important defence barrier, while in the later years it was principally used as a prison for political prisoners that fought for their democratic ideas during resistance. Almyrida is a common point of departure for visiting Apokoronas villages. A few words for some of the villages: KalyvesKalyves is a tourist seaside village with sandy beaches. The village is located at the eastern end of Souda bay, across Akrotiri. The ruins of a Venetian castle called Bikorno / Apikorno / Ipokoronio survive in the area. There are differing views as to how the village got its name. Some people think that farmers and shepherds would build kalyves (Greek for huts) that served them for taking care of their land, while others believe that the name was given by the Arabs, when they invaded Kalyves in 828 A.D. and they built “huts” to live in. The village is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards and is crossed by three rivers (Xydas, Kiliaris, Mesopotamos). Xydas that springs from the White Mountains is a habitat for trout and ducks. PlakaA traditional village with old well-preserved houses, picturesque alleys, rocky beaches and sea caves of immense beauty. It is worth noting that there are 215 caves in the area.GavalohoriGavalohori is a traditional village located in the centre of Apokoronas. It was named after the noble Byzantine family of Gavalas that gained ownership of the village after drawing lots, when Crete was shared among the 12 rulers of Byzantium in 1182. At a distance of 500 m. from the village, several famed Gavalian wells still survive to our days. The village has a history and folklore museum. The Museum is housed in a building that is a representative example of local traditional architecture. Museum’s history section exhibits weapons and swords, tableaus, historic lithographs and (Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish) coins. The village also has a women’s cooperative of hand-woven items and embroidery, where the visitor may purchase the hand-made works and woven fabrics known as kopanelia. VamosVamos is a traditional village that makes an impression with its beauty and hospitable inhabitants. Old traditional houses with gardens, traditional cafes and narrow alleys make up the image of this village with its magnificent history. Its long tradition travels us back to the 9th century, when it was inhabited by Arab pirates. Unconfirmed historical sources report that the village was first inhabited by Saracen pirates in the 8th century A.D. During the Ottoman occupation, it was an administrative centre and in 1863 Savas Pascha picked the village to be the capital of Sfakia prefecture.Known for their patriotic ethos, Vamos’ inhabitants stood out with their struggles for independence, winning the battles of 1896 that led to freeing Vamos from the Turks. It is worth noting that when Vamos was the capital of Sfakia prefecture, the village knew particular bloom thanks to an outstanding model of development.Sightseeing includes the old school (built in 1863), with an all-girls school in its courtyard, as well as the churches of Agios Nikolaos and Agios Georgios.At the outskirts of Vamos, there are two Venetian villages, Karydi Kartsomado and Karydi Ag. Georgios, where visitors will come across the ruins of the Monastery of the Virgin Mary, full with mosaics, as well as the Monastery of Agios Georgios, still in use and one of the most important architectural monuments in Chania prefecture. It was first referred to in 1600 and knew great growth when it served as an oil mill in 1829.Twelve impressive stone arches, harmonically blending in the older structures, were once the huge olive oil mill. It was deserted beginning of 1900 and was recently re-established in a successful effort to restore and highlight its beauty.Kefalas StylosThis village of Apokoronas with its fountains, 2 km from Nio Chorio, will enchant you with its verdant landscape and its excellent-quality fresh spring water that is also bottled for sale. As you enter Stylos, you find the Byzantine church of Saint John (1271-80) with its marvellous murals to your right. Historical monuments in the area are abundant, while the village’s spacious square with the age-long plane trees next to fountains will surely offer you a relaxing and very delightful break. KainaThe village is located at the spot of the ancient location Kaino, Kainos or Kanos, believed to be the birthplace of Vritomartys Diktynna.EmbrosnerosA picturesque village surrounded by an oak-tree forest. At one end of the village, guests may visit the renovated tower of Alidakis, a fearful janissary assassinated by Sfakian rebels led by Manousakas burning down its tower in 1774. Villages worth seeing in the area are Kastelos, Patima and Fylaki that has an impressive Minoan tomb with a long corridor and a square chamber built with huge rocks and covered by a pyramid-shaped ceiling. VryssesVrysses are located on the way to Skakia; this village developed after 1925.Vrysanos river crosses the village, while an ancient Hellenic-Roman era bridge, the so-called Elliniki Kamara, is located east of the village. KournasA semi-mountainous village built at the feet of the White Mountains with a splendid lake bearing the same name, the only fresh water lake in Crete, surrounded by mountainous massifs. The waters of the lake change colour in the day depending on the sunlight shed, while its actual depth remains a mystery, despite the fact that divers have tried to reach its bottom. Whether for dinner or for a drink in one of the area’s taverns or cafes, or if you love nature, you will certainly discover the allure of this idyllic landscape.
