Crete is the southernmost island in Europe and offers something for everyone. The island of Crete is the largest of all the Greek islands and it is the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean.

After all, it´s among the finest in the world and has established Crete as one of Europe´s most popular holiday destinations. And, of course, the island´s historic importance in today´s world as the home of the Minoan civilization with important archeological finds at Knossos, Phaistos and Gortys, is evidenced by the tens of thousands of visitors to these sites each year.

 Crete was also the Centre of the Minoan civilization and is believed to be the oldest civilization in Europe. When visiting Crete you still have an opportunity to see remnants of this civilization at Knossos Palace. Over the centuries the island of Crete has been under control of the Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, Turkish and obviously now the Greeks.

The reason Crete has had so many invaders and rulers, is its strategic position in the Mediterranean, it was the controlling point for the eastern trade routes and has a wealth of natural resources. There is a lot of history to be discovered when visiting Crete, from the recently excavated Knossos Palace, the eerie island of Spinalonga.

Also look for the fortresses that sit imposingly in many towns and cities of Crete including Koules fortress in Heraklion and many other Venetian fortresses.
