Gerakas is a small, medieval village built on a natural harbour surrounded by steep hills, where the sea runs inland creating Greece’s only fiord. In ancient times, the entrance to the harbour was known as Porto Cadena (Chain), because of the chain that was used to close off the entrance to the harbour. While in Gerakas, you can visit the ancient castle which was occupied by King Zarakas. The impressive monastery of Evangelistrias, built on the peak of a mountain, is only 15km away.
