Ligaria is located 21km north west of Heraklion and 1km east of Agia Pelagia. The Bay of Ligaria is enclosed and well protected from the frequent northwest winds blowing in the region. Nearby survives the church of Panagia, that served as the monastery Panagia Ligariani in the past. The region gets its name after the monastery, which in turn gets its name from the beautiful plant “osier” (ligaria in Greek), with the flexible stems and the beautiful flowers, which abounds in the area.
