Grigiria is a small mountainous village built at 420m above sea.level on the southern side of the mountain Psiloritis. It has 214 inhabitants (2001) and is mentioned in all Venetian censuses (and of 1563) . The name of the village comes from the word "grigoros" (=fast).
Also this village suffered during WW II. The view to the bay of Messara is fantastic and it seems like time has stood still in this village. A beautiful walking route leads to Lagolio village (4 km southern). The traditional mill: “Moulali” from 1850 is also worth seeing. Opposite of Grigoria is the beautiful mountain “Kartalos” which will be very interesting for climbers. At the 14th of September there is a party in Grigoria with Cretan music..
