It is located in a very short distance of the fantastic coast line of the South Crete and the cosmopolitan areas of the North of the island. It is a suitable destination for touring all the island around.

The name finds its origin in the ancient town of Lappa-Lambi. The church of the Panaghia, with its splendid dome and central nave has parts dating back to the 14th century, as can be seen from the architecture of the building and the wall paintings. The present day church is a restoration of the older building dating back to the first years of the Venetian occupation of the island. In spite of the Turkish Occupation, the church has weathered well and some of the wall paintings are in not too bad condition. There are tombs under the floor of the church, where possibly the donors, or the bishops of Lambi as was the custom, lie buried.
