Living the spirit of Easter in Rethymno

Rethymno is the Cretan picturesque city where tradition is still present in everyday life and in the island’s rich local culture.

Wild Flowers of Rethymno

Rethymno, as the whole Crete, has an amazing variety of flora, which is directly linked to the climate and geomorphology of the place. This can be explained by the geological isolation of the island, which has facilitated the development of local species since ancient times. From an estimated number of 2000 species of plants, 160 are endemic and grow exclusively on the island.

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.
