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.

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.

The Venetian harbour

From 1300, Rethymno's harbour was constantly being changed and re-built to make it safer and hold more boats. Due to the prevailing currents along the coast, this was never entirely successful. It retains its picturesque character even today.

The Loggia

The most characteristic Renaissance monument of Rethymnon and the most important architectural reminder of the Venetian occupation.

The Rimondi Fountain

Rebuilt in 1626 on the foundation of the earlier one, the new fountain is architecturally and sculptural ornate.

Saint Franciscus Church

The catholic monastery of the Franciscan order. It sports a single sloped wooden roofed basilica with an impressively decorated entrance.

The Neratzies, the Kara Mousa, the Great Door, and the Veli Pasa mosque.

The five surviving mosques are a reminder of the years of the Turkish occupation. Of these, the first is the only one that can be visited, which is used today as a music conservatory.

The Prefecture Building (Nomarchia)

Built after 1869 is a commemorative building in neo-classic design.

The Old Town

Has been preserved in good condition with the public and private monuments of the Venetian, Turkish and later periods.
