Lake of Agia

Lake of Agia

In an area of 450 acres, very close to the town of Chania (about 9 km west), is the beautiful lake of Agia. The lake borrows its name from the neighbouring village.

The image of the artificial lake in the background of the imposing mountains of Chania reminds postcards from other European countries.

The area was used years ago by the PPC plant, which is near the lake, but in recent years PPC has closed and the site has been granted and has emerged as an important green area and an equally important wetland.

The flora of the area includes various species of aquatic plants, while its fauna consists of many species of migratory or non-bird birds, frogs and others. An indication of the ecological importance of the lake is that it has been designated as a protected habitat.
