Crete (Island Complex)

Cretan Dance

Cretan Dance

Welcome to Crete!

Welcome to the largest of the Greek Islands. The native land of Zorba the Greek, of El Greco, Nikos Kazantzakis, and Mikis Theodorakis. The Island of the Minoan Kings and their sentry Talos. Of Daedalus and Icarus, of the Minotaur and the Labyrinth. The land of the famous frescoes in prehistoric Knossos and Phaistos.

Of the local traditional clothing, topped by caps of fringed black handkerchiefs, of the more than 400 endemic herbs, of the frantic folk dances led by the tunes of the Cretan Lyra, of Warriors of freedom and resistance to the Turkish and Nazi invaders, of wine and raki symposia, and of open-hearted philoxenia.

Of the Caves of Matala Beach, part of the Hippy history of the 70's, and of Drossoulites, the mysterious misty knights attacking the southern coastline on horseback over the waters of the Libyan Sea. The Island with 1046 kilometers (650 miles) of coastline and of snow covered mountain peaks of more than 2000 meters (6000ft) in height.

Welcome to the Island that has bridged three continents and four civilizations!
