Holidays in the traditional Greek villages
About 60 km south from Heraklion in the western part of the Messara valley is the traditional village of Vori situated. The village stretches in a slope by the side of the river. The remains of the Minoan palace of Phaestos are situated 2 km to the south and the coast of the Messara 4 km to the west.
The main explanation of the name of the village goes back to the time that King Radamantis was ruling the Phaistos palace. His son got the name of Voros.
