Today, there are several sights worth seeing in the beautiful Apodoulou village. The most famous one is probably the mansion of Kallitsa, the woman who was kidnapped when she was 11 years old by the Turks in 1823, sold in the slave markets of Egypt, and came back to the village after years as a lady and her story has become a legend in the area. Furthermore, the old olive mill and a beautiful stone fountain from the 19th century, which is at the north entrance of the village on the main road, are also worth visiting.
A short distance north of the settlement is the single-room frescoed basilica of Agios Georgios Xififoros which dates back to the 13th century, as well as the Minoan settlement of Apodoulou, which has been designated as an open archaeological site.
It is also worth coming here for the Wine Festival that is organized at the end of every summer by the cultural association of the village.
The village’s traditional festival takes place every year on August 29, the feast day of Agios Ioannis Rigologos.
