Rethymnon combines the old-fashioned charm of a small town with proximity to long sandy beaches with all the modern conveniences usually found in big tourist resorts. This unhurried little town boats a well-preserved medieval harbor, developed during the 16th-century Venetian rule. Another significant remnant of the Venetian occupation of Crete, an imposing fortress overlooks the town, its massive walls sheltering a complex of historical monuments. Below the photogenic citadel spreads a network of pedestrian-friendly streets, strewn with Byzantine churches and domed mosques built during the Ottoman era. Venture outside Rethymnon to discover dramatic gorges, remote monasteries, and ancient villages clinging precariously to Crete's picturesque coastline. Rethymnon is in Rethymnon Prefecture.
