The road east of Vamos leads through a group of small villages, surrounded by wonderful scenery and very well preserved local folk architecture.  

Xirosterni, which is built around the interesting church of Christ and in whose honour a festival takes place every year on the 5th and 6th of August, is the best preserved village of all, maintaining its traditional style with many old houses. The road continues towards Litsarda, passing through the archaeologically interesting cave of Dafne or Tripa.

Even though the village has lost some of its traditional character it remains interesting and it is worth visiting the church of Panagia with its fine wood-carved reredos and icons made by the Rethymnian A. Vivilakis.
