It is around 1 hour far from Heraklion but worth to visit. The tree is a giant creature. In from of the tree they have a spring water. The village is beautiful and locals are very welcoming.

The tree is situated in the beautiful grounds of a taverna. The size of the trunk is off the scale,over 14 meters in diameter, a must see on your visit to Krasi.

To see it in person is the only way to fully appreciate the height of this natural gem. Its height and width is colossal.

What a privelege to see such a magnificent tree. It grows next to a natural spring and clearly loves where it is located. Amazing.

To gaze upon something so old is a privilege. The stories that tree could tell. When it was a sampling Jesus and the Roman Empire were in existence. Amazing
