Crete is an island of contrasts at the crossroads between Europe, Asia and Africa, the three continents of the Old World.


The 56 Great and small Cycladic islands, of which only about 30 are inhabited, are located in the heart of the Aegean, where three continents meet Asia, Europe, and Africa.


Amorgos is the easternmost island of the Cyclades. The soil is mountainous, with the Krikelos (820 meters) as the highest peak, and small plains between the hills.
