Ascent to “Meroniano Aori”

The ascent can start from the village Meronas to the twin peaks of the mountain of “Holy Spirit” where the cognominal small church is situated (at a height of 1.000 m.) where every year a Mass takes place and a little higher to the peak “Sopata” (1.100 m.). The position of the mountain gives the possibility of vast visibility to all directions. The well-known herb ”dictamo” of Crete (dittany) is grown on the mountain, usually on steep and hard to reach spots.
