Lato is situated just 3kms from Krista and only a few km's from Agios Nikolaos and is a fascinating ruined city built between a mountain pass in the 8th century BCE. On the way be sure to look out for a statue depicting the dying daughter of Kritsa as this is close to where she was fatally wounded (read up on her story and spot the house where she lived back in Kritsa). It was absolutely fascinating to walk around the ruins of the city and it was easy to conjure up in your mind just what it would have looked like almost 3000 years ago. As well as fascinating the views back down the valley in one direction and down to the Mirabello Bay alone make the visit worthwhile as they truly are spectacular.
The other great thing was that helped bring the whole site to life was the fact that you could just wander freely throughout and there were very few visitors there (just one other family when we visited).
We added a visit to Lato on the same day we visited Agios Nikolaos, the Katharo Plateau and Kritsa
