Geocache Description:


is a mystery-series of different easy to solve riddles which will lead you to special places in the Apokoronas district! Like in the Kokkino Codes , GPS - Series or the APE-Series you will encounter places of historical and cultural interest or just beautiful landscapes. If you solve the task, you will get the final coords - and hopefully a little aha-experience.



Kókkino Chorió: Picturesque scenery for the village scenes
Coming north from Georgioupolis, along the coast, you almost automatically end up in Kókkino Chorió. The still quite sleepy little town with the dreamy streets played one of the main roles in the film. Here most of the village scenes were played. Here was suffered, loved, laughed and cried. The church looks exactly as it did in Alexis Sorbas times, and much of Kókkino Chorió is still recognizable when looking for scene images. In Crete, time stands still longer than in other places.

The place in front of the kafenion


Even the village kafenion, where the widows goat is kidnapped in the film, still exists and has now developed into a village shop. With a little luck, youll meet inhabitants who once worked as extras at the film shoot. But even if nobody shares their personal memories with you, Kókkino Chorió is always worth a visit. This is ensured by its magnificent location over the Souda Bay with the breathtaking view of the White Mountains.
