Crete between sea and history
An accessible beach holiday in Crete is the GO4all’s proposal for the summer, a nearby destination rich in history and the ideal choice for those who want to treat themselves with an accessible trip to the Mediterranean. The Minoan civilization , which takes its name from the son of Zeus Minos, lived here early in 3000 BC, bringing this island to its splendor. Its strategic position over time made it important above all for trade, but also for artistic and cultural exchanges, leaving it an enviable architectural heritage with its city-states embellished with luxurious and majestic palaces. Colonized by Romans, Arabs, Turks and Venetians it is possible to find traces of their cultures on the island still nowadays. Thanks to the long seasonality from spring to autumn, the ideal it’s to combine a seaside stay with the discovery of its history. Crete also has a tasty and healthy Mediterranean cuisine. Among the typical dishes we remember the classic Greek dishes such as Dakos , Greek frisella seasoned with tomato, and tzatziki, a yogurt cream with cucumbers and garlic, and also the local specialties such as fried snails, smoked pork, kakaiba , a fish soup, and the countless “pitte” seasoned with cheese and vegetables. Do not miss the archaeological excursions, with a visit to the famous Minoan palace of Knossos , where the legend of the “labyrinth” still echoes thanks to its remains. Let’s not forget the archaeological museum of Heraklion with its 15,000 finds. More historically recent are the towns of Rethymno and Chania with their Venetian historic centers rich in history and charm, and the Arkadi monastery, one of the most important places of the Cretan revolt against the Turkish occupation. It is also essential to remember how much nature is the host with its dream beaches, such as Balos or Elafonissi.
Finally, the beauty of clay also means getting lost among the villages that dot it, discovering panoramic views, tasting in traditional inns and simply sipping a “raki” distilled from marc.
