Your Destination —
Rethymnon lies on the north coast of Crete and has the longest sandy beach on the island (7 miles). It is 50 miles west of Heraklion and 37 miles east of Hania.
Rethymnon is a town rich with attractions and sights. 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, small Venetian harbour and narrow streets.
Attractions worth visiting include:
The Venetian Loggia
An elegant building built in the 16th century, that used to be a Venetian gentlemen's club and today houses the information office of the ministry of culture and a sales point of the archaeological museum.
The Fortezza Castle
At the top of a low hill named "Palaiokastro" dominates the town. It was built in 1590 to protect the city from pirates and the Turks. The municipal theatre "Erofili" stands also at Fortezza's premises. It is an outdoor theatre that hosts almost all the performances during the Renaissance Festival.
With its rich decoration is situated at Platanos square, the centre of the Venetian town. It was built in 1626 by A.Rimondi, in order to provide the citizens with drinking water.
The Archaeological Museum of Rethymno
Just opposite the entrance of the fortress, exhibits objects from the Neolithic to the Roman period, found at the prefecture of Rethymno (mainly Eleftherna, Monastiraki and Armeni). Clay figurines, funerary coffers, grave offerings, statues, grave steles, red-figure vases, bronze vessels, jewellery and glass vases, are just some of the objects on display.
