Walking in the Botanical park & Gardens of Crete offes spiritual tranquility and visual pleasure in addition to knowledge on plants and their material . Nearly 20 hectares of land are waiting to welcome you, full of fruit trees from all over the world, herbs, medicinal and ornamental plants in a park different from others, where the land’s formation and the region’s microclimate make it a paradise for hundreds of plants and animals! In the midst of this colorful and vivid landscape stands a burnt centennial olive tree, a memorial and a reference to the dismal fires of 2003, the park’s history and origin. The newest and one of the most interesting sites of the Prefecture of Chania lies only 18 kilometers outside the city, on the feet of the White Mountains. It is ideal for visitors of all ages, combining enjoyments that only Crete can offer!

Beautiful and well-kept place. But best in this placeis, that it shows their visitors, all those different plants that can grow in Crete, and even tropical trees with fruits. Also the food in the restaurant is very good.

Visited here at the end of holidayseason, late October. Park is full of plants, exotic, ancient old trees and flowers. Much to experience, smell, see, wonder and learn. Our kids, 6 and 11, boys enjoyed it much. Saw flowers and fruits, earlier there would have been more flowers and blossoming. Lovely even this late of the year, how amazing when... More

We went to the park near the end of October and although it was late in the season it was still worth going. The park is well laid out with stunning views of the mountains and some really great specimens of plants and trees. Do visit the restaurant after walking the trails, it has to be the highlight the food... More

A wonderfully peaceful and beautiful location. As a plantsperson it was a dream. Amazing plants lots of botanical information with birds and animals as well. The restaurant served really lush food sourced from the park in an elevated position with fab views. All the staff charming and friendly. A lovely day out.

Such an interesting place which combines a walk (albeit up and downhill made easier by terracing) with lovely plants, trees etc and a great restaurant at the end, what more could you want?
