Gavalohori village
Apokoronas, Hania

Gavalohóri (GR: Γαβαλοχώρι), in Apokoronas, Hania, Crete, is a large old village with particularly interesting and well-preserved folk architecture. In this officially protected, traditional village a lot of interesting buildings can be found, such as the 18th century two-roomed, arched olive oil press, the temples of Panagia and Agios Sergios, the old school and many residences.

Visitors can also find the unique folklore museum of the prefecture of Hania, organised by the Ministry of Culture, filled with a wealth of displays of folk life.

The landscape around the village still has its natural beauty. Plenty of opportunities for walks are provided around the group of Venetian wells, the Roman cemetery, the neighbourhood and the church of Agios Pavlos.
A women association continuing the old art of lace making (kopaneli) and dealing generally with alternative tourism also exists in Gavalohori. Gavalohori could offer environmental management training as well as other activities at the Environmental Educational Centre, which is currently under construction.
