Tzermiado
Tzermiado 2872 hits


Tzermiado - the biggest village of the Lasithi plateau. The picturesque village of Tzermiado is located west of Agios Nikolaos, on the wonderful Lasithi Plateau which is a magnificent place favoured by nature and one of the few areas of the Mediterranean to be constantly inhabited despite the fact that it is lying at an altitude of almost 850 m. The Plateau is located on the west side of Mt. Dikti and enjoys a particularly mild and healthy climate.


Tzermiado is lying on the slopes of Mt. Selena, a part of the assembly line of Mount Dikti (Dikti Mountains). It was founded during the 15th century and is the biggest village on the plateau with 1000 inhabitants. There are a few accommodations as well as excellent tavernas and traditional cafes.


The surrounding area of Tzermiado features numerous sites such as archaeological finds from the Minoan period, the Trapeza or Kronio cave and the gorge of Havgas
.
The name of the village is owed to the first settlers in the period of the Venetian domination. In the whole area in and around Germiado, there have been found vessels dated to the Middle Minoan period, potsherds, Roman coins and bronze items. The number and the variety of the finds show that the area has been inhabited at least as early as the Minoan period.

Nissimos Plateau 2646 hits
Nissimos plateau is located 3km north from the village of Tzermiado, Lassithi Plataeu at an altidude of 920m. The area is totally unknown and there are some routes which start at the plateau and cross interesting landscapes (i.e. Minoan settlement at Karfi). 

The road to reach the plateau starts at the village of Tzermiado. At the western entrance to the village, you will see a dirt road going off to the north (there is a Greek/English sign at the junction which says “To Timios Stavros Church”). Initially there is a small problem on the road (loose gravel on an uphill part) but afterwards it is very passable to the end. After a climb of 2 kilometres, you enter the deserted and very beautiful Nissimos plateau, where you can get an idea of what the landscape must have been like in the B.T. (before tourism) period.

Two hundred metres down the road, you will see a junction where a Greek/English sign tells you to the right is the way to the church of the Holy Cross (Timios Stavros) from where you have a lovely view of the Lasithi Plateau. If however, you want to visit the Minoan settlement at Karfi, take the road to the left.
