Vrysina Route

Advanced 48 klm. / Mountain Bicycle

The road from Rethymno leads to the village of Gallos where the University Campus is situated, and continues south reaching the post-Minoan burial ground of Armeni. >From here, a dirt road leads eastward to the north slopes of Vrysina up to Chromonastiri. It is worth stopping over at the Byzantine chapel of the Virgin Mary of Keras. The dirt road leads to Prases from where it continues south towards the dam of Potami.  Shortly after the beautiful bridge of Prases, a fork to the right leads to Myrthio and then through the villages of Seli, Goulediana, Kare and, last, Armeni from where the main road descends to Rethymno.
