Agios Nikolaos

Lassithi is het meest oosterlijke departement met als hoofdstad Agios Nikolaos. Deze stad is pas in 1870 gebouwd en heeft ongeveer 10.000 inwoners. In het centrum ligt een klein meertje met vissersboten (men zegt bodemloos). Bezienswaardigheden zijn de Agia Triada kerk, het archeologisch museum (di-zo 8.30-15.00 uur) en het folkloristisch museum (zo-vr 10.00-13.30 en van 19.00-21.30 uur). Vlakbij Agios Nikolaos ligt Spinalonga of Kalidon (het lepra-eiland). Tot 1954 werden naar dit venetiaanse vestingeiland en spookstadje nog leprozen verbannen. Een van de mooiste Byzanthijnse kerken op Kreta met goed bewaard gebleven muurschilderingen is de Panagia i Kera bij het plaatsje Kritsa. De zuidelijkste stad van Europa heet Ierapetra en ligt in het departement Lassithi. je kunt hier een kijkje nemen in het fort of van hieruit in de zomermaanden overvaren naar het mooie eilandje Chrisi. In het noordoosten van het departement vind je het palmenstrand van Vai en een rijk klooster Moni Toplou met een van de mooiste iconen van Griekenland. Lassithi staat bekend om haar hoogvlakte met talloze oude windmolentjes.
