Deserted Villages of Crete - Settlement of DIO PRINI
published in CretanBeaches.com
Dyo Prini (Two Oak trees) is one of the beautiful abandoned villages of Crete, where you think that time has frozen. The area is surrounded by oak trees, as its name implies, and is located close to Limnes village, Agios Nikolaos Municipality, on the road heading to Kalos Lakkos. There are several collapsed stone cottages, some of which have been restored lately. There are many water tanks and threshing plateaus. There are many more abandoned settlements around, such as Agia Pelagia, Drakos, Kalos Kalos, Atzibraga, Renaido and Lousetro.
