Aradaina Gorge

Greece

Continuing west of Anopolis on Sfakia, you will find Aradaina, a literally deserted village. A visit here to wander through the paths, the gardens and the half demolished stone houses which unfortunately the bridge couldn’t save from decay, is well worth it.

Continuing west of Anopolis on Sfakia, you will find Aradaina, a literally deserted village. Some of the former inhabitants live in Sfakia and visit each weekend, the rest though have completely abandoned it.

To approach the remains of the old houses, you will have to cross the steel Vardinogiannis bridge, which joined the until then blocked villages of Aradaina and Agios Ioannis with the rest of Sfakia. Its construction was completed in 1986, and of course was named after its financer. Today it is a drawing point of many visitors, who arrive here to perform base jumping at the 137m gap that lays between it and the narrow canyon walls! Even of you don’t like extreme sports, a visit here to wander through the paths, the gardens and the half demolished stone houses which unfortunately the bridge couldn’t save from decay, is well worth it.
