563m high with excellent views towards Elounda and Spinalonga on one side and Agios Nikolaos and the Gulf of Mirabello on the other. The chapel in the 'saddle' of Oxa is called Timios Stavros, the Holy Cross. There is a celebration here on September the 14th; the raising of Timios Stavros. When viewed from Elounda Oxa looks quite intimidating but it is a relatively straightforward climb which can be done in less than 2 hours. In fact with a suitable vehicle you can drive to within 30 minutes of the summit (but that would be cheating!).
