Unpretentious attempt to show Cretan flora. Show around by Liam a young man from England. Run by volunteers passionate about the environment . Don't expect a traditional touristy experience but visit if you have any interest in herbs flowers shrubs and Chameleons

We walked up from Rethymnon Beach for about 40 minutes on a hot sunny day. Welcomed by the staff who took their time to explain the plants and were very friendly. The goats, the chameleon and the view from the top were really worth it.
