Cultural

One can never experience the true heart and soul of Crete, without tasting its raki, – Crete’s most renowned drink- and dance to the sounds of Lyra – Crete’ s emblematic musical instrument- along with its beautiful and friendly inhabitants.

Every summer Crete is filled with small festivals where Cretan music- still alive and productive even in nowadays- is played in villages all over the countryside. Concerts, art exhibitions, local and even international events complete the picture of an island of culture and provide the visitor with pleasures not only for the eyes but mainly for the soul.
