Bramiana Dam is an artificial dam and lake that demonstrates how human intervention may occasionally serve the needs of nature. The lake was made to supply the local greenhouses with water in the dry summer.
The lake area is the biggest wetland on Crete, and has become a nature reserve known for its birdlife.
