Basking between the commanding bastions of its 15th-century fortress and the glittering azure waters of the Mediterranean, Rethymno is one of Crete’s most enchanting settlements. Its Venetian-Ottoman quarter is a lyrical maze of lanes draped in floral canopies and punctuated with graceful wood-balconied houses, ornate monuments and the occasional minaret. Crete's third-largest centre has lively nightlife thanks to its sizable student population, some excellent restaurants and a worthwhile sandy beach right in town.
Roussospiti is considered the “balcony of Rethymno”. It is located just a few km away from Rethymno City. Here, on the slope of mountain Vrissinas at an altitude of 300 m, the view to the Cretan Sea is amazing. The main feature of the village is the Venetian fountain dated from the 17th century, with a faucet in the form of a lion head. In addition, impressive wallpaintings such as the Crusifixion can be found in the Temple of Virgin Mary. At about 500 m south of the village the cave of Lygeri is located. In the cave, there are stalagmites and stalactites with a diameter of 250 m! This cave was used as a “crypt” where habitants took shelter when they were in danger.
