They are beautiful, they are young, creative and combative ...
They talk to you about love ...
of their love for their island, Crete.
A fantastic message of hope.
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
Le musée archéologique de l'ancienne ville d'Eleftherna, n'est pas un grand musée, mais il est très important quant aux éléments qu'il renferme.
1 700 m2 de salles d'exposition, d'entrepôts et de laboratoires. A notre avis, l'un des plus beaux musées de Grèce, après ceux d'Héraklio et Athènes. Parmi les pièces les plus intéressantes, la dame d'Auxerre, célèbre sculpture retrouvée en France. Homère voit enfin son travail attesté et récompensé. A visiter lors de votre (re) découverte de la Crète.
The local life
Creations, exhibitions, innovations, new signs have been appearing, giving hope to the local population.
After several years of heavy crisis, Greece is recovering and fighting.
New events are taking place everywhere in Crete, in Greece.
The first of them : the Carnival of Rethymno, which brings together thousands of visitors and lasts 3 days.
A new wind blows on the island, a combative youth fights for his country.
