About the neighbourhood
Atsipopoulo is a heroic small village. The designation certifies the Byzantine and Venetian origin since atser-popoulo means stubborn people. Ta first samples existence of this village starts the Minoan period. Residents were eng?ged with oil, wine and pottery from antiquity. The old mansions of Atsipopoulo were built the one next to another, leaving between them long and narrow picturesque streets, sometimes passing through small medieval arcades and arches. In each house the visitor will admire the venetian art, the eastern luxury and the cretan line. writen by D.Aetoudakis.
