Sfaka Village

Sfaka is a big settlement on the National Road, 30 km away from Sitia. It was named after the homonymous plant that grew near the spring. A Minoan tomb was found with an urn at Keratidi.

There is an inscription of Michael Siligna dating from 2 March 1643 at the old church of the Holy Trinity (Agia Triada). An Ottoman spring exists in the west of the village.

In Sfaka is the beginning of an asphalt road leading to the tourist resort Mochlos and a carriage road leading to the small Monokaras Plateau.
