The island of Crete
An island with many faces constantly renewed ...
Remained more than four centuries under Venetian domination and two centuries under the yoke of the Ottoman Empire, Crete today conceals many architectural gems of great historical and cultural value.
The strength of the Cretan people ? A proud soul and sure values. Family above all, but also religious and human.
In 1897, the island obtained its autonomy, but remained under the protection of the great European powers.
This period of autonomy lasts until 1913, when Crete is officially united with Greece.
A must-see place
The Archaeological Museum of the Ancient Cityof Eleftherna, is not a large museum, but it is very important in terms of the elements it contains.
1,700 m2 of showrooms, warehouses and laboratories. In our opinion, one of the most beautiful museums in Greece, after those of Heraklio and Athens. Among the most interesting pieces, the Lady of Auxerre, a famous sculpture found in France. Homerfinally sees his work attested and rewarded. To visit during your (re)discovery of Crete.
