The Old Town

April 18,2016 Irene Tsompanaki 0 comments

After dark, the Old Town is the point from which all walks in Rethymno begin and end.
Beyond the endless wanderings in its streets, which are the number one attraction and the favorite activity of every visitor of the city, in its sights are included
The lovely Venetian Rimondi Fountain, with water springing from three water basins , three lion shaped water exits,
The Historical and Folklore Museum which is housed in a beautiful Venetian mansion,
The Turkish school of 1796 with its beautiful square,
The impressive church of San Francesco and

The Mosque of Gazi Hussein Pasha, right next to it, which today houses the Conservatory of Music.
