Rodopou is a traditional mountain Cretan village, not yet touched by tourism but totally independent. In the heart of the village there is a large square and all around it one will find bakery, butcher’s, mini markets which are open all year round and the local cafes “Kafenion” where a shot of the local drink “tsikoudia” is always at hand. The narrow alleyways and historic buildings bring a picturesque note to the village. The locals are extremely friendly too and will take great pride in introducing you to their village and trying to teach you a bit of Greek.
