Arkadi - Eleftherna - Margarites Rethymno


clock8 hours 30 minutes


    Archaeology and culture are the highlights on this half day trip. The Monastery of Arkadi has played a big part in the Cretan Resistance. The Arkadi Monastery is an Eastern Orthodox monastery, situated on a fertile plateau 23 km to the southeast of Rethymnon on the island of Crete in Greece. The current catholicon dates back to the 16th century and is marked by the influence of the Renaissance. At the museum of Eleftherna we get views over the ongoing excavations. In Margatithes we see how traditional pottery has been made through centuries. Located in picturesque green rolling hills of the Rethymnon region, the village is well known for its pottery, and attracts large tour buses in the busy season. After the rushed tourists have left, it is then possible to stroll around this very charming village and enjoy the many pottery studios.
