Anopolis is a tiny alpine community situated at a height of 600 meters above sea level. It is located 84 kilometers south of Chania Town and has a large population, the most of whom work in agriculture and cattle husbandry.
The little hilly community is surrounded by a stunning scenery with rich flora and the spectacular Aradena Canyon in the distance, which is Greece’s only bungee jumping destination and the Balkans’ deepest gorge.
Anopolis thrived as an autonomous town in ancient times, even minting its own coins. The residents of Crete revolted many times under the Turkish rule, demanding Crete’s independence, but the revolutions were put on hold and the town was burned down. Daskalogiannis, a notable Cretan revolutionist from Anopolis, is commemorated with a bust in the city’s center.
