Photographer's Note

Tzitzifes is a small traditional village in the foothills of the White Mountains with beautiful views across the fertile valley of Vrisses. The village is surrounded by trees and has a good local taverna, kafenion and a small grocery store. Traditional Cretan ewes milk cheese is made in the village.
The site is characterised by rocky lands and steep slopes, which are covered by a matorral of daphne (Laurus nobilis), some woodlands of Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens), phryganas (dominated by Sarcopoterium spinosum and Thymus capitatus) and a garrigue with Quercus coccifera (5331 is used to describe tree-spurge formations of Euphorbia dendroides). An the lower altitudes there are cultivated lands, principally olive trees, while vineyards cover a small part of the site.
