About Heraklion

.

With a roar, the Minotaur lunges, knocking one unfortunate soul off his feet and over the back of the great beast. The detailed frescoes of Crete’s Knossos palace, once the centre of Minos’ kingdom, bring old legends to life. If you manage to find your way out of the labyrinthine structure of the centre, the rest of this city continues to spoil you with unparalleled historic riches. From flamboyant Venetian fountains to the Moorish fortified walls which surround the city.

The city’s walls were fortified by the Venetians as a strong defence – in places they are 60 metres thick.

For a taste of modern life, visit Heraklion Market. Have fun at the shoe stall, attempting to find a matching pair, and taste local luxuries, including raki wine and hunks of fresh bread dipped in locally-produced, golden olive oil. When you need to relax, unspoiled beaches by the warm, blue waters of the Mediterranean are waiting nearby.

Heraklion was officially founded by Arab Saracens and used as a safe haven for pirates.
