One of the biggest attractions of the public garden is the Cretan Diet Festival organized every July. It lasts for one week and takes place every summer, attracting a lot of visitors.
The Municipal Garden of Rethymno is considered particularly special since it is home to rare plant species, it is also used as an exercise place and hosts many cultural events.
Last week Dr. Patrick Griffith, director of the Montgomery Botanical Center of Florida, USA, along with Stergio Pirintso Department of Biology, University of Crete, visited the Municipal Garden of Rethymno in the framework of a research collaboration with the Botanical Garden of the University of Crete. He was much impressed by its architecture and the plethora of herbs and wild greens to be found there.
