Agnostos Stratiotis Square

Address: Πλατεία Αγνώστου Στρατιώτη 4, Rethymno 741 00, Greece


Agnostos Stratiotis Square
It was called the square of the Unknown Soldier because of the homonymous statue erected in 1930 in the center of the square, the unveiling of which was made by Eleftherios Venizelos. The statue is located at the intersection of the waterfront and the new beach of the town. In 2014, a modern sun-clock was placed in the square of the Unknown Soldier (or Iroon Square) as a result of a team collaboration ofRethymnian scientists with local commissions. In every parade, wreaths are laid there as an honor to the soldiers that were lost in those battles.

City of Rethymno

You are invited to travel to areas, which are perhaps still unknown to the majority, and which are sometimes remote, but always magical and magnificent throughout the seasons. We recommend our visitors to see our picturesque villages through the eyes of the soul, try the Cretan cuisine, our wine and “tsikoudia”, participate in our revelries and festivities, but most importantly get to know our soul, our hospitality, the safe, untouched interior of the region, the other Rethymno.
