Old town of Rethymnon
The old town of Rethymnon is one of the best-preserved towns of the Renaissance. Lying in the heart of modern Rethymnon, it combines the oriental features of the Turkish period with Renaissance-style Venetian architecture.
A stroll through the alleys of the old town of Rethymnon is like traveling back in time. A living museum of monuments of past centuries. Despite the damage sustained in WWII, many Venetian and Turkish monuments still stand, as the town has not been struck by major earthquakes.
