The Mesara Plain of Crete is situated in southern Heraklio prefecture, near the Gulf of Mesara.

It is the largest plain of Crete and is farmed all-year round thanks to greenhouses which dot the entire plain. In ancient times, it was the "breadbasket" of the island but nowadays is farmed with tomatoes, cucumbers and a variety of other produce.
