The tiny village of Agios Spyridon or Kanene with 50 inhabitants, is located along the old route to the Ziros Plateau in the Sitia area. The village is close to the archaeological excavation of Pressos. Until 1955 the village was called Kanene or Kanenes. The story is that a Byzantine general named Kanene was exiled to the village. This is where the village gets its name from.
In Agios Spyridon there is beautiful view over the green valley in front of the village. Lots of flowers (especially roses and many bougainvillas) in the village, picturesque streets all around, old stone houses and one cafeneion.
