        City Center Details

        Magnificent beaches and interesting archaeological sites characterize the town of Rethymno on the Greek island of Crete. The ancient origins of the town of Rethymno now provide a wealth of interesting attractions and landmarks for tourists to visit. Artistic events are regularly booked at the Faculty of Letters of the University of Crete. The Fortress of Fortezza was built in the 16th century to protect the harbor and city; now there are only remains but they are still worth a visit for their historic value. In the Kastelli quarter can be found the Rimondi Fountain and nearby one can view the arches of shipyards from Venetian times. There are also vestiges of Turkish mosques which can be visited.
