Agios Nikolaos, a busy town in Greece bursting with life, lights, color, welcomes tourists from all across the world.

Agios Nikolaos was built on the bay of Mirabelo, which is the Capital of the County of Lassithi. According to archaeologists, this was the site of the ancient town of Lato or Hetera, which prospered during the 3rd century B.C. In the 16th century, the Venetians gave it its modern name in honour of the small church of St. Nicolas, built in the 8th or 9th century. The Mirabelo castle was built at the same time, giving its name to the Bay.

Agios Nikolaos' pleasant climate and its heart touching beaches have turned the area into a famed tourist resort, attracting great numbers of visitors in the summer. The town is full of shops, restaurants, coffee houses, pubs, bars, and hotels. In spite of the booming tourist industry, the traditional profile of the town remains intact. Narrow stone laid alleys and squares, traditional homes, coming down to the leka Voulismeni, at the entrance of the harbour, are among the sites worth seeing. Also worth visiting are the Archaelogical and Laographic Museum as well as the "Koundourios" Municipal Library. From the port of Agios Nikolaos you will find easy access by fishing boats to cosmopolitan Elounda and to the isle of Spinaloga. Every two years the "Nautical Week" is celebrated with swimming competitions, water sports events and a fireworks display. Another lively feast - with an open air market and authentic traditional Cretan style festivities - takes place at Analipsi of Almyros on the 50th day after Easter.
