The plateau of Anopolis is situated right above Loutro, at an altitude of approximately 600m. It is a fertile plain, cooler than the coastal areas in the summer and is the traditional heartland of the region of Sfakia. 

From the plateau of Anopolis one has an exceptional view of the south side of the Lefka Ori. Climbs of the highest peaks of the Lefka Ori, at 2,500 metres, start from here. The view of the mountains is particularly impressive in the spring when they are covered in snow. The area is protected from the north winds and it has very mild weather all winter. This area of the Lefka Ori is also famous for its rare wild flowers that can be seen in the spring.

The only road leading to Anopolis is the 12 km serpentines road from Hora Sfakion. The road was recently reconstracted. You can visit anopoli with a bus as well. The bus departs around 4.00pm from Hora Sfakion and returns from Anopolis at around 6.30am. You can also get a taxi from Hora Sfakion which will take you to Anopolis in 10 minutes.

About 2 km west of Anopolis, the abandoned village of Aradena offers beautiful examples of ancient Cretan architecture. The impressive gorge of Aradena is some 19 km west of Chora Sfakion on the road to Anopolis and Agios Ioannis. It starts from the southern slopes of the White Mountains, north of the abandoned village of Aradena and ends at the Libyan Sea near the beautiful beach of Marmara, a little west of Loutro.

Archaeological site of Anopolis: The archaeological site covers a large area and is surrounded by fortified walls. It includes the foundations of several houses, a large basin and probably the foundations of a big temple. Many walls of 1-3 m of height are preserved. Most of them are built with unprocessed rocks, while others are made with shaped stones. The visible ruins reach to the south until the chapel of Aghia Aikaterini, were one can see a part of the Ottoman fortress.The houses found in the area were either built in clusters forming neighbourhoods, or were isolated farm houses. Also, coffer-like graves from the roman period, have been discovered in the area, while the cemetery of the ancient town is located between the Limnia and Pavliana settlements.From 1987 to 1988, Greek and Canadian archaeologists carried a land surface research, discovering several protominoan locations in the Anopolis area, in altitudes between 600 and 800 m. About 2 km west of Anopolis, the abandoned village of Aradena offers beautiful examples of ancient Cretan architecture.
