Crete is the largest island in Greece and the second largest in the eastern Mediterranean after Cyprus . It has a length of 260km from east to west and has a width of 60km. It covers an area of 8.336km ² and it is extremely mountainous, which gives it special characteristics with unique landscapes, alternating between them so sharply and differently. Demographically, it is one of the 13 regions of Greece with a population of 650,000 and consists of the prefectures of Chania, Rethymno, Heraklion and Lassithi .
Tradition is an integral part of the Cretans, who, thankfully, have never abandoned their past and serve it faithfully even today. The Mediterranean cuisine prevails throughout the island, based on olive oil, wine, fruits and vegetables . Whoever first steps their foot on the sacred soil, they instantly love the intoxicating scent of herbs, the coolness of the blue beaches, its myths and history.
