Crete #04: Samariá Gorge

the gorge is 16 km long, starting at an altitude of 1,250 m at the northern entrance, and ending at the shores of the Libyan Sea in Agia Roumeli. The most famous part of the gorge is the stretch known as the Iron Gates, where the sides of the gorge close in to a width of only three meters and soar up to a height of 1,100m (3,610feet)

The 'Iron Gate'.
