Prodromi is a village in the municipality of Pelekanos, Chania Prefecture, Crete, Greece. The name of the village in 18th century was "Peroudo Vrisi". The current name is from the church of Agios Ioannis Prodromos. It is a nice community unspoiled from tourist exploitation surrounded by natural mountain view beauty of Cretan earth. The area is covered with picturesque hills and beyond them steep mountain-sides in a magnificent landscape. There are protected considerable archeological places like the area of Lissos which is a magnificent location that hosts a Temple devoted to Asklipio (god of medicine) and a natural spring with curing water, a Roman grave yard and one of the first Byzantine Churches in the province of Selino at Chania.

Yrtakina is an ancient city from the prehistoric period with a castle made by Giant Rocks. Main production is based on Olive Oil, Splendid wine from dry rocky fertile ground, and diary products from naturally grown goats and sheep. Main church is Agios Charalambos located near the nice neighbourhood of “Halliliana”.

At the name day the friendly local population organizes a big celebration The village had no modern road till recently but today can be reached with a narrow modern asphalt covered road from one side leading to the near by city of Paleochora. The north approach to the village required a 4x4 off-road car or any other durable car until the end of 2008 where a new asphalt covered road was constructed. This has protected the area, which kept its calm and unspoiled environment.
