The village of Agia Paraskevi is situated 8 km south of Kastelli and 44 km from Heraklion in the western foothills of the Holy Spirit hill. Findings of the Minoan civilization period have been discovered west of the village, in the place called Armi, as well as findings of pottery art.
The cemetery church, with the same name as the village, is located southwest, while the churches of St. Nicholas and the Holy Spirit offer an excellent view of the Kastelli valley.
Today in the village of Agia Paraskevi, there are still some beautiful samples of traditional anonymous architecture as arched houses, stone-built ovens and traditional wine presses. You can see them by a simple tour of the village.
