Vamos is a semi mountainous village in the prefecture of Chania, Crete, that retains the authentic physiognomy of the traditional Cretan village.

Among the houses within the village, some old mansions, mostly of the past century, have been restored or been renovated, retaining the elements of folk and neoclassical architecture.

All Vamos is adorned with jasmines and bougainvilleas, as well as other gorgeous flowers that pop out from the balconies and courtyards.
