History of Crete

Arcadi Monastery, located in the mountains, is one of the most important historical sites in Crete.

A symbol of resistance against the Turks and a resting place for many fighters and civilians who died there at the time of rebellion in 1866.

Their remains are preserved in an ossuary. Many people's favourite places on Crete is Chania, a Venetian harbour, with museums, shops, excellent places to eat. The biggest attraction on Crete is the Minoan Palace at Knossos.

There were actually several palaces or residences, with the first one built around 2000 BC, but it was destroyed by an earthquake 300 years later.

So was the second, even greater palace, probably by a huge tidal wave after an eruption of the volcano on Santorini, causing a huge tidal wave. All in all, it is understood that the palace once housed over a thousand rooms. Knossos is not the only palace in Crete. Phaistos and Malia are just as interesting.

Aquarium and Reptile Rescue centre in Hersonissos Port are something quite different, as is Souda Bay War Cemetery. It's for those who don't forget about the 2nd world war. Not a tourist site but a place to reflect. There is no shortage of good beaches in Crete, Elafonissi, Balos Lagoon, Stalis, to name a few.

To supplement these natural beauty tourist activities on offer on the island include many water sports, as well as snorkelling and scuba ping. Whilst the interior of the island offers a host of scenic mountain trails and activities. Other places of interest include the zoo in the public gardens at Chania and the northern part of the island offering a busy cosmopolitan appeal with bars and nightclubs lining the ancient streets. The close proximity of the other Greek Isles makes each one as appealing as the other with the opportunity to hop from island to island.
