The Crete region
The Crete region
Welcome to Rethymno, Crete! The beautiful city of Rethymno is standing on the site where ancient Rithymna used to be, as archaeological excavations of the late Neolithic period (3500- 2800 BC) proved. It is the gate way between Chania and Heraklion. Full of rich history, ancient sites, magnificent sandy beaches, Byzantine churches, lovely villages & lively resorts.
Rethymno combines an old- time aristocratic appearance with a modern aspect, a blend which is creating a unique atmosphere.
Various elements are participating to the charm of this attractive town such as the many arched doorways and stone staircases, 16th century buildings, Byzantine, Hellenic and Roman remains, narrow stone-paved streets, the small Venetian harbour and the superb huge municipal gardens, ideal for peacefulness and tranquility.
FESTIVALS AND CELEBRATIONS IN RETHYMNON:The Renaissance Festival is the culmination of the city's cultural festivals. The festival plays host during its three weeks to a variety of theatrical, musical and cinematic events as well as dance and multi-media spectacles. The Cretan wine festival Already over 35 years old, this celebration in the public park lasts three weeks in the heart of summer and attracts thousands of visitors. The Rethymnon Carnival held at the start of Lent every year, has been revived in recent years and it can be regarded one of the best and biggest in Greece. The feast of Klidonas, a historic celebration every June which maintains an interesting custom of burning the flower wreaths which were made on first of May. The fishermen's festival Celebratory festival in the Venetian Harbour, with free fish and wine on offer. Rich FLORA AND FAUNA as the climate and geomorphy of Rethymnon, and Crete generally, allow the existence of a large number of species, many of which are endemic to the island. As a result, the visitor may find natural treasures that have existed on the island for centuries and were depicted in Minoan frescoes such as the sea lily, sea turtles "caretta caretta" which lay their eggs on the beaches and may even see the Eleanora's falcon which migrates from Africa in the summer months. In the valleys, the visitor will come across, beautiful Fauna and Flora unique to Crete,dozens of varieties of wild flowers. The quick-eyed visitor may also spot hares, skunks, martens, hedgehogs, bats and many types of birds. In the semi-mountainous areas many birds of prey soar the blue skies. In the mountains amongst other varieties are the Cretan maple (acer sempervirens), the Cretan tulip (tulipa cretica), the yellow violet (erysimum raulini) etc. This is also the most important habitat for birds of prey as well as the Cretan wild goat and the thorn mouse (Amocos minus). In the wetlands of Geropotamos and Preveli, the visitor will encounter interesting fauna and flora, especially the latter, which includes the Cretan Palm tree (phoenix theophrastii). Lastly, in the gorges visitors can come across the famous Cretan dittany and other fragrant plants of Crete. Rethymno is a haven for walks, cyclists or just site seeing!!!
The town offers all the touristy facilities needed as well as lively bars and clubs and various restaurants and excellent taverns.
Rethymno has regular bus services to the main towns and villages of the entire prefecture.
Panormo is a typical example of a Greek village, whitewashed buildings gleaming in the mid day sun, a mini-maze of back streets sloping gently down to the small harbour and pretty beaches.
There's the traditional village square, with tavernas and Kafenions acting host to the backgammon players where all day waiters serve ouzo and tiny plates of olives and cheese. Once a thriving harbour and a home to wealthy merchants, the old dilapidated houses are being renovated and restored with great elegance.
This is the Greece of haphazardly painted blue doors and rough washed walls, behind which hidden courtyards and gardens display potted plants and widow's dress in black – timeless!
In and around Panormo you'll find small beaches of smooth sun-warmed pebbles, sandy coves, some with water sports facilities, fishing, diving etc. There is a golf course only 55 minutes away.
For shopping the village has mini markets, a bakery, butchers, gift shops, post office, car hire etc.
Driving time to Iraklion airport is 45 minutes and 65 minutes to Chania. There are buses, which go regularly to Rethymno, Heraklion and Chania making Panormo an ideal base to explore many parts of Crete.
