Crete is the largest island of Greece. Its topography is dominated by soaring mountains, namely the Lefka Ori (“White Mountains”), the Psiloritis massif (Mt Ida), Mt Dicte and others, alternating with fertile plains and stunning gorges. The Cretan and Libyan Seas, respectively to the North and South, have carved out sheltered harbours, rock-strewn coastlines and sandy beaches. Crete was the cradle of Minoan civilisation and, according to mythology, the birthplace of Zeus. Strategically situated at the juncture of three continents, the island came under the rule of several conquerors (Romans, Arabs, Venetians and, last, Ottomans), before finally uniting with Greece in 1913. Crete’s tumultuous history has forged the indomitable Cretan spirit, while centuries of fruitful cultural exchanges have left their mark on countless monuments, as well as on folk and scholarly traditions that admirably fuse East and West. The proverbial Cretan hospitality, exquisite local produce, mild climate, and beauty and diversity of the natural landscape all make Crete one of Greece’s top tourist destinations.
