Agios Vlasios

The village of "Parakandias" which is a 12.7 mm from the city of Heraklion on the road Irakleio – Fortezza – Vasilies – Agios Vlassis. Is built on the western slopes of mountain Giouchtas sanctuary at an altitude of 260 metres.

For the first time his name appears in the manuscript relating to churches and Monasteries (Ecclesiarum et Monasteriorum Catasticum Comunis) of 1320 and thereafter refers to all subsequent censuses until today. In an Ottoman document in 1684 we find the name of the village as Magaralar.

Characteristic of the village is the Ottoman Mosque is one of the few that kept the countryside of Crete, while in the cafes and in the Nice dining space that exists are dishes from pure products with rich flavors.
