The Crete region

The village of Roussospiti is situated 300m above sea level above the town of Rethymnon.Today there are about 700 people in our village. Half of them are “Real Roussospitiani” and the remainder are foreigners or Greeks from other parts of the island /country. There are two churches in the village, the old “Isodou Theotokou” and the “Agia Paraskevi”, where every Sunday a Greek-orthodox mass is celebrated. “Agia (Saint) Paraskevi” is the patron saint of the village, and on July 26, her name day, there is a big village celebration.

In Roussospiti there is a kindergarten and a primary school for the local children. There is also a Minimarket, a “kafenion”, a kiosk and two “tavernas” for the benefit of locals and visitors alike.


The Monuments Of Rethymno

The "Fortezza" Fortress was built after 1573 to protect the city's population. It comprises four bastions and three entrances while to the north, its design is typical for the period with three look-out posts (salients). The most significant of the surviving buildings is the Ibrahim ?an Mosque, originally built by the Venetians as a cathedral.

The Venetian Harbour: Since 1300, Rethymno's harbour has constantly been changed and rebuilt to make it safer and hold more boats. Due to the prevailing currents along the coast, this was never entirely successful. It has retained its picturesque character up to today.

The Loggia: It is the most characteristic Renaissance monument of Rethymno and the most important architectural reminder of the Venetian occupation.

The Rimondi Fountain: Rebuilt in 1626 on the foundations of an earlier one, the new fountain is architecturally and sculpturally ornate.

The Saint Franciscus Church: It was the church of a Franciscan monastery. It sports a single-aisled, wooden roofed basilica with an impressively decorated entrance door.

The Neratzes Mosque, the Kara Mousa Mosque, the Great Door Mosque, the Veli Pasa Mosque: The surviving mosques are a reminder of the years of the Turkish occupation. Of these, the first is the only one that can be visited and houses today a music conservatory.

The Prefecture Building (Nomarchia): A Neoclassicistic monument built in 1845.

The Old Town: The old town of Rethymno is well preserved with public and private monuments of the Venetian, Turkish and later periods. The little alleys embraced by the streets Melissinou, Ethnikis Antistaseos, Dimakapoulou and the Iroon Polytechniou Square, the visitor can read the history of the old Rethymno, discovering at the same time a small town with Medieval and Renaissance character, which has kept typical features of all following periods.
