During a journey to Chania, a traveler can admire the colorful seaside resorts of North Crete. Many of them will impress you with their history. For example, Agia Pelagia, the heiress of ancient Apollonia, was one of the most popular pilgrimage centers of Hellene during the Venetian epoch (from XIII to XVII). The settlement was the home of the famous church of Agia Pelagia, which later resulted in its modern name.
Rethymno, also known as Rethymnon, is a real museum town, preserving the unique examples of the Venetian and Ottoman architecture. This city is famous for its Fortezza, a unique fortress of the XVI century, original Rimondi Fountain built in the style of the Age of Enlightenment, and the ancient monasteries of Arkadi and Monis Preveli.
The beauty of the seaside settlements and villages of Gazi, Bali, Panormo, Gerani, Georgioupolis, Vamos, and Kalyves will certainly impress you for a long time. Their authenticity and Mediterranean landscapes enchant travelers at first sight.
