' FAIR AND FERTILE ',circled by the sea,Crete is known as the crossroads of the Mediterranean. Its five thousand years of civilization began with the rise of the magnificent Minoan civilization. Later intruders included the Romans, Venetians, Ottomans and Germans, today replaced by tourists from all over the world.
The people are fierce and proud with a culture and passion for life as enduring as the rugged beauty of their island. Closer to Africa than to mainland Greece, it is the largest of the islands in the sun-drenched southern Aegean.
Crete's high mountains were home to the legendary Minotaur, the Muses of mythology, and is said to be the birthplace of Zeus himself. The island's passion has been commemorated by the master El Greco, and Nikos Kazantzakis, whose lives were inspired by this wonderful island.
The sunlight in Crete is direct and dramatic, the coast rugged and romantic, and the mountains still mysterious after centuries of habitation - all qualities that make Crete seem the most Greek of all the islands. Vast in spirit and size, Crete deserves a stay of at least several days. It is a perfect off-season destination, offering many activities, no matter when you choose to visit.
