Rethymno is geographically part of the northern coast of Crete, at the longest stretch of sandy beach on the island and is known by visitors as the “hidden jewel” of Crete. Since 1400 BC, Minoans, Venetians, Turks and Cretans have all left their unique marks on the island, successively surrendering ancient cities, minarets and citadels, the hill of Fortezza, the narrow winding streets, fishing harbor and lighthouse, monuments which together compose stunning imagery and exude old-world charm. The town of Rethymno lies between Heraklion and Chania, nearly equidistant from both cities. Rethymno is also at the middle of the island, within walking distance of magnificent landmarks and historical monuments and therefore an ideal place to stay for the visitor who wants to explore the island.
Rethymno, is the only Renaissance city in Greece that is so well preserved and is also famous for its literature and arts. Its history has been recorded in the book “The Tale of a Town” by world-renowned author Pantelis Prevelakis (1909 – 1986), who was mentioned by the American writer Ernest Hemingway (1899 – 1961).
The area is rich in archaeological sites, such as the Fortress of Fortezza, Ancient Rithymna and others. The visitor also has the chance to tour museums such as the Historical and Folklore Museum and the Archaeological Museum, and others, as well as many monuments, religious and not.
