The Renaissance Festival counts a long time of presence and continues to blend integrity and durability as well as the zeal of its founders and contributors. It celebrates the period of Cretan Renaissance and attempts to revive it by a series of cultural activities. The interdependence of many cultural fields proves that the Venetian period exerted great influence, providing the spiritual ingredients that brought art to their peak. The Renaissance era is a source of inspiration for the collective conscience, that acknowledges the establishment of this heritage and contributes to its revitalization and enhancement, thus bringing to light the local cultural identity and the historical and cultural exchanges, which created new paths leading the Cretan literature and poetry to their flourishing. The Renaissance Festival considered to be one of a kind in the Mediterranean region. Its a meeting point of local and international artists.



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.
