The recommended day-trip provides a unique experience that brings the visitor in contact with the tradition and the history of Rethymno.
With routes via places of amazing natural beauty, for example, to one of the largest olive grove in Europe, the visitor initially sees the impressive Venetian man-like shaped towers of Maroulas that dominate with their mass and their architecture.
The sacred monastery of Arkadi follows a European monument of Liberty, where during the Turkish occupation, on the 8th of November 1866, hundreds of soldiers, women and children enclosed themselves in the monastery, set fire and were exploded in order to avoid slavery.
After the monastery of Arkadi, our route leads to the extremely beautiful village of Margarites where there are workshops of clay handicraft of unique value. Play with the clay, buy unique souvenirs from the traditional art of clay artists and return to Rethymno bearing unforgettable memories.
