Project Description

Merichas Cliff

Be at peace while at the edge of the cliff!
The trail starts shortly after the village of Panagia. Reaching the cliff is short and easy, regardless of age or fitness level. During the hike we will talk about the nature, history, myths, and traditions of Iraklia. We will probably meet goats that graze freely in the mountains, as well as a pair of eagles.
There will be a picnic stop in a safe place near the cliff with a breathtaking view!
