A picturesque inland large village, amphitheatrically built on the southern foot of Dikti Mountain, Viannos keeps the features of the traditional Cretan village with old houses, uphill narrow streets and stone fountains, with openings here and there, shadowed by old plane trees. The village is the birthplace of the Greek author Ioannis Kondylakis.

Apart from the various monuments and constructions, the area is worth visiting for the wonderful natural environment. Don't miss visiting the Omalos plateau on Dikti Mountain, where Kondylakis’famous literary figure Patouchas lives as a shepherd; it is also worth going to the Viannou - Amira gorge; the entrance is in short distance from Viannos.

The coastal area does not fall short in natural beauty. The gorge of Arvi with its 454 m high walls, the 200 m long cave Vigla with stalagmites and stalactites located at the top of the Kerato hill long sandy beaches, small secluded coves are some of the many attractions.
