Welcome to Rethymno on Crete Island

Click to open large map in popup ...Rethymno, one of the four provinces of Crete, stretches from the White Mountains on the West to Mount Psiloritis on the East, bordered by the provinces of Chania and Heraklio.

The largest mountain ranges of the White Mountains, Psiloritis and Kouloukounas and the secondary ones of Kedros, Asiderotas and Vrisinas form a network of valleys, the main one of which is Milopotamos and the two valleys of Amari.

The few flat areas are found near the north and south coasts, while the plateau of Nida stretches over the mountainous mass of Psiloritis. The city of Rethymnon with its 26 000 inhabitants is the capital of the province.

Rethymnon is Crete's most mountainous province. Of its 1.496 km2, 507 are cultivated, 936 are pasture, 36 are covered by settlements and only 17 km2 are covered by Mediterranean oak, pine and maple-tree forest.

The Climate is mild Mediterranean and particularly dry and warm. There is sunshine 67% of the year and temperatures range from 12 to 27Celsius. The prevailing winds are Northerly and northwesterly, while occasional hot Southerly arrive from the African continent with great strength. The quality of seawater is amongst the best in Europe.
