Spread over three hills and surrounded by olive groves and vineyards producing excellent wine, Agios Miron is built on the site of the ancient Raukos, mentioned by Homer, about 20 km southwest of Heraklion. His present name is that of a holy man, Bishop of Knossos, who was persecuted and put to death by Emperor Decius. The village is home to the tomb of Saint Miron.

According to an ancient tradition, a dragon that devoured men and animals in the area was turned into a rock by Miron, and you can go and see this rock (provided you ask the natives where it is). Every year on August 8, a big party is organized.
