Location:

Gavalohori is a large old village with particularly interesting and well-preserved folk architecture. It is located on Cape Drapanos in the Vamos municipality of the Apokoronas region, Chania, Crete.

In this officially protected, traditional village a lot of interesting buildings can be found, such as the 18th century two-roomed, arched olive oil press, the temples of Panagia and Agios Sergios, the old school and many residences. Many of the well-known Gavaliana wells still stand within a fantastic landscape.

In addition there is an excellent folklore museum at Gavalochori Village; here you can see the history and the culture of the village. It is hosted in a renovated Venetian building with stone arches. The museum was founded in 1967 but was inaugurated in September 1993. It is housed in a building typical of the local traditional house architecture and occupies two levels. The first room represents the most typical traditional house of Crete, which is known as kamarospito. This type of rural house was initially single-spaced and had an arched opening which more or less divided it. In the second hall one can see exhibits made of silk, such as womens clothing and weavings for household use. The pottery section (jugs, oil lamps, etc) and the historical collection of arms, paintings etc, are in the third hall. Passing on to the fourth room one can see bobbin lace and parts of a wood carved ecclesiastical iconostasis. In the last room there are elaborate stone artefacts.  

Finally, there is an agriculture and tourist women''s co-operation on the main square, which has a cottage industry producing knitting embroideries and laces of delicate art.

It is named after the Gavalas family who lived here during the reign of the Venetians.

Gavalochori is four kilometers from the coast at Almirida.

The population is around 500 but this number swells in the summer months as tourists, relatives and visitors arrive.

Several family run tavernas offer the visitor tasty dishes of Cretan cuisine in addition the village has many shops, two cafes, a pastry shop with cafe bar, the village pre-school, a graphic design Studio, bakery, three grocery stores and a handicrafts shop.

Many interesting walks exist around the village in the unique region of Apokoronas.
