Welcome to CRETE ! Welcome to the largest of the Greek islands.
The native land of Zorba the Greek, of El Greco and Kazantzakis.
The island of the Minoan Kings and their sentry Talos, of Daedalus and Icarus, of the Minotaur and the Labyrinth, the famous freskoes in the prehistoric palaces in Knossos and Faistos.
Crete of the local traditional uniforms width fringed headkerchiefs, of the more than 400 endemic herbs, of the frantic folk dances led by the tunes of the Cretan Lyra, of warriors of freedom and resistance to the turkish and nazi invaders, of wine and raki symposia and of open-hearted philoxenia.
CRETE of the caves in Matala beach, part of the hippy history of the 70's, and of Drossoulites, the mysterious misty knights attacking the southern costline on horseback over the water of the Libyan sea.
CRETE - the Island with 1046 kilometers of shores and snow-covered mountain peaks of 2000 meters hight.
