Fisherman’s Crypt

An eerie and impressive crypt of a museum.

Lassithi Fisherman's Crypt

Fisherman’s Crypt is located at a small church across the pier of Voulismeni lake in Agios Nikolaos. When you go through the door of the church, you come to a crypt with very little light and some parts none. The length of the crypt is approximately 25 meters.

The crypt has been turned into some sort of fisherman museum with a number of old dusty items hanging on the walls or the ceiling. This is a rather eerie experience however highly recommended.

Tips: There is no mention of opening times, so you will have to be lucky and find the door open.

Admission: Free
