Atheati Poli Festival 2015


An unusual festival, now in its third year re-connecting the people, history and community of ancient Heraklion city. The Venetians built the massive defensive fortification walls that still surround Heraklion but their upper levels have been forgotten and fallen into disuse. This festival, the ‘Unseen City’ in english, runs a wide range of traditional cultural and exciting events for locals and tourists alike, for all ages and mostly (if not all) for free.

This year running from Friday June 12 – Sunday 14
