Western Sphakia. The new village of Ayia Roumeli (1.28) stands at the mouth of the Samaria Gorge, on the site of ancient Tarrha. The coastal slopes are very arid, but the mountains behind are wooded with pines and cypresses. Towering above is the dazzling white limestone peak of Zaranokephala (2140 m). Looking NE. August 1995.
