The biggest gorge in Europe

The Samaria gorge is in southwest Crete in the regional unit of Chania. Some say that the gorge is 18km long, this distance refers to the distance between the settlement of Omalos on the northern side of the plateau and the village of Agia Roumeli. In fact, the gorge is 16 km long, starting at an altitude of 1.250m at the northern entrance, and ending at the shores of the Libyan Sea in Agia Roumeli. The gorge became a national park in 1962 particularly as a refuge for the rare Kri-Kri (Cretan goat), which is largely restricted to the park and an island just off the shore of Agia Marina.
