The village of Agia Pelagia is located within a distance of 25 kilometers away from the city of Heraklion, on the northern coast of the island and has a permanent population of about 500 people. Though relatively small, it is a very well known tourist resort with several facilities and exquisite sandy beaches witch attract lots of visitors, especially during the months of the summer. You will have to chance to choose among lodging facilities of all kinds which will surely supply your needs and will also fit your budget. There is also a wide variety of restaurants and cafeterias, so you’ll have the ability to discover the ones that suit you best, as well as easy ways of moving around via public or rented means of transport.

During the ancient years, on the spot where Agia Pelagia is built today, used to stand the settlement of Apollonia. However, the modern name of the village is due to the church of the same name which is built on a rock on the beach of the village and is worth visiting during your stay here. The church was built on the spot where the icon of Agia Pelagia was discovered, an icon considered to be miracle performing by the residents of the area. In the general location there are lots of interesting sights , such as the picturesques village of Rodia, situated inside a lush green gorge, the Monastery of Savvatianoi as well as the little church of Agios Antonios built inside a cave. You will be impressed by the view of nearby Achlada as well as by its stone fountain and the picturesque chapels of Agios Ioannis Vaptistis and Agios Trifonas. Big celebrations take place in the village every year on October 8th, on the nameday of Agia Pelagia, which is considered by the locals as the patron saint of their village.
