Crete’s sense of mystery is extremely deep. Whoever sets foot on this island senses a mysterious force branching warmly and beneficiently through his veins and his soul beginning to grow. (Nikos Kazantzakis, Report to Greco)

Crete is the place where myths look like history and history is like a myth. From the distant past to the present day, every place on the island has a short or long story to tell. It is the largest island in Greece and the second largest after Cyprus in the Eastern Mediterranean. Steeped in history and culture, scented by thyme and wild herbs, Crete still has enough paradise to offer with its abundance of myths, legends and history, a breathtaking landscape, an exceptional blend of past and present, and a plentitude of choices.
Dramatic mountain ranges are dotted with caves and sliced by deep gorges, and its rugged interior is blanketed in olive groves, wild flowers and aromatic herbs.

The proud and hospitable Cretan people are famous for its culture, innovative spirit and nutritional habits. Crete combines mountains and magnificent beaches organized or secluded, sandy or pebbled. Tradition is an integral part of the Cretan soul, which thankfully never abandoned its past and serves it on any occasion.
The healthiest cuisine in the world, the Mediterranean, based on the olive oil, wine, cereal, creamery, fruits and vegetables is nothing else, but the Cretan diet. The Cretan diet is not just a variety of dishes laid on the table. It comprises a whole philosophy of life and represents the lifestyle of the Cretan people.

Rethymno is one out of the four regional units on the island of Crete. Built in antiquity (ancient Rhithymna and Arsinoe), a strong enough center to mint its own coins and maintain urban growth. One of these coins is depicted as the crest of the town with two dolphins in a circle. This region as a whole is rich with ancient history, most notably through the Minoan civilization centred at Kydonia east of Rethymno.

The town still maintains its old aristocratic appearance, with its buildings dating from the 16th century, arched doorways, stone staircases, Byzantine and Hellenic-Roman remains, the small Venetian harbour and narrow streets.

The city's Venetian-era citadel, the Fortezza, is one of the best-preserved castles in Crete. Other monuments include the Neratze mosque (the Municipal Odeon arts centre), the Great Gate (ΜεγάληΠόρτα, Porta Guora), the Piazza Rimondi (Rimondi square) and the Venetian Loggia.

Today the city's main income is from tourism, many new facilities having been built in the past 20 years. Agriculture is also notable, especially for olive oil and other Mediterranean products.
