West-side Monasteries

West-side Monasteries route

Rethymno offers many options with many walking paths leading to old churches, monasteries but also to vibrant villages that will surprise you.
The whole prefecture can be compared to a “living” painting, depicting the architectural preferences of earlier times with rare frescoes as well as inestimable icons.
You will meet areas perhaps still unknown to the majority and sometimes remote, but always magical and magnificent throughout the seasons. See our picturesque villages through the eyes of the soul, try the Cretan cuisine and the local drinks, participate in local festivities and dance “pentozali”... Get to know our soul, our hospitality, the interior of the prefecture, the other Rethymno.

City of Rethymno

Rethymno’s timeless attractions and diverse landscapes, city architecture, museums, archaeological sites, endless sandy beaches and escapes to nearby villages will reward you with a rich cultural yet relaxed experience all year round. Step off of the beaten path into the untouched Greece of the past. Cultural pride and natural beauty – Rethymno offers the best of both.
