The harbour town of Rethymnon is located on the north coast of Crete and is the capital of the Prefecture. Its 13 km long beach starts on the seafront of the town.
The town offers contrasts in architecture from its picturesque old town, Venetian fort and harbour to its modern buildings, a mixture of cultures reflecting its colourful past with Byzantium, Venetian and Ottoman examples around the town; the Venetian Guora Gate, Rimoldi Fountain, Loggia, the churches of St Francis and the Lady of Angels, to name a few.
The large village of Anogia is located on the borders of Rethymnon and Heraklion Prefectures. The village was founded by shepherds during the 13th century.
The village was the centre of the Cretan rebellion activists during the Ottoman occupation and a key resistance meeting place during the German occupation in WWII. Their resistance activities led to the total destruction of the village by the Germans and the execution of all the Anogian men. After the war the village was rebuilt.
Its inhabitants follow the old traditions, occupations and way of life with sheep herding and handicrafts of wool dyeing and preparation for weaving on the traditional looms. The traditional costumes are still worn.
