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.
Heraklion s the largest city and the administrative capital of the island of Crete, Greece. It is one of the largest cities in Greece. The Bronze Age palace of Knossos, also known as the Palace of Minos, is located nearby. Heraklion is close to the ruins of the palace of Knossos, which in Minoan times was the largest centre of population on Crete. Though there is no archaeological evidence of it, Knossos may well have had a port at the site of Heraklion as long ago as 2000 BC.
History is very much alive in the old town of Heraklion, just like in most Greek cities.
From the old Venetian Harbour, the August 25th Str., leads to the old town's centre. The central square while surrounded by cafes, stores and restaurants, is dominated by the fountain of the Lions, built by Morozini the venetian governor in 1628. The Town Hall, is today housed in the Venetian Loggia, a building from the same era and next to it, the plateau and the cathedral of AgiosTitos an exceptional monument from the Byzantine era.

From the central square the street of the "Central Market" ends at "Kornarou Square" with the coffee house, housed at "Koubes" a Turkish fountain and next to it the "Bembo fountain" built by a Venetian nobleman. To the left "Averof Str." leads to "Eleftherias square" , Heraklion's main square where the Archaeological museum stands and to the right 'Kyrillou Loukareos Street" leads to Agios Minas cathedral and Agia Aikaterini Museum.
