The town of Rethymno is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Greece:
Venetian fortifications harmoniously mingle with Orthodox and Catholic churches, as well as mosques.
Large mansions of Venetian architecture, arches and cobblestone streets all create a wonderful atmosphere. Rugged canyons, leafy valleys, small rivers cutting through the mountains, wildlife sanctuaries and forty gorges, complete the picture. Unique natural wonders will take your breath away. Visit Rethymnon in the summer and enjoy the sun on the soaked beaches. Magnificent sandy beaches await bathers on the north coast (Cretan Sea) and the south coast (Libyan Sea). Rethymno Beach: Organised sandy beach more than 20 kilometres of length, stretching from the city of Rethymnon towards the eastern part of the region.
