The Village of Kellaria by Itanos Municipality, Palekastro
Kellaria is a small mountain village in the east of Sitia region, 30 kilometres from coastal Sitia and just 5 km before the village of Zakros.
The scenery is typical of the mountainous east of Lassithi Prefecture, with not very high mountains but impressive gorges.
Today the village is divided into two parts. The first one is around the central road and it is the inhabitable part.
The other part is up the hill, which is picturesque, but isolated, full of old ruins.
