It has magnificent fortified walls and several other testimonies to the Venetians' time of power. Heraklion is close to the ruins of the palace of Knossos, which in Minoan times was the biggest centre of population on Crete.

    Agios Nikolaos is the capital town of the prefecture of Lassithi in Crete. Located on the eastern side of Crete, Lassithi is the least tourist region of the island. Although it has some popular places, including Elounda, Sissi, Sitia and Ierapetra, the rest of the region is authentic and away from mass tourism. The best beach of Lassithi is Vai, an amazing place with impressive palm forest and crystal water. Very interesting are also the traditional villages in the Plateau of Lassithi, keeping all the local customs and a calm pace of life.
