Culture on Crete

A small selection of pictures, as excavation sites can be found all over Crete. The options range from famous Knossos and Gortis to the smaller and usually less well known sights that are equally worth a visit and can often be found simply by walking across the countryside. The remains of the Venetian occupation are also very interesting, especially in Rethimnon.

We recommend for  all those interested in the legal issues entertaining reading "The Greater Inscription of the Law Code of Gortyn" Adonis S. Vasilakis, ISBN 960-88534-2-7. Be told the history and content of Europe's oldest legislative texts from Gortis.
