Stavrochori is a village of Lassithi prefecture, built at an altitude of 313 meters. It has about 150 inhabitants and belongs to the Municipal Community of Makry Gialos of the Municipality of Ierapetra. His oldest name was Stravodoxari.Above the village are rocky mountains with pines and olives, and underneath there is a river ravine that in many places becomes a canyon. From various parts of the village looking at the sea below Koutsouras, left and right you have the mountain slopes that create a breathtaking scenery.
The village has stone-paved alleys that point to island landscape and lead to a small square in Mesohoria, where there is a Panagia Church and a mini market. Fifty meters further, there is the central square of the village, the "Platanos" covered with thick foliage of the ancient plane tree and a mulberry tree. In the three traditional taverns of the village that are there, the visitor can enjoy traditional Cretan dishes at very good prices.
Throughout the area there are hiking trails, among beautiful gorges, dense vegetation, natural water springs and picturesque chapels. At the same time, the beaches of southern Crete such as Galini, Machairidi, Kalamokanias, Makry Gialos and Daskkari are within a short distance (ten to twenty minutes) and are considered among the best in Crete.
