City
“The Koules is a fortress located at the entrance of the old port of Heraklion, Crete, Greece. It was built by the Republic of Venice in the early 16th century, and is still in good condition today. Many people go there to walk, run , bike or take their dogs for a walk. If you want to see it from the inside I think there is a ticket you have to pay. Otherwise you can see it from the outside and have a walk at the port.”

“The beautiful monastery of Arkadi can be found in the foothills of the western Ida (Psiloritis) Mountain. The Cretans consider the monastery as a symbol of freedom from the turks. During the revolt in 1866, hundreds of refugees and Cretan freedom fighters sought sanctuary in the wine store rooms with the monks, where there was also a stash of gunpowder. When the Turks made their way towards their last refuge, the Abbot gave the order to fire the gunpowder. Hundreds of Cretans and Turks were killed; giving real meaning to the battle cry of Crete - “freedom or death”! November 8th is a day of celebrations in Arkadi and Rethymno. ”

Cave
“Idaho Andro Cave is located on the eastern ridges of Psiloritis, on the plateau of Nida. The cave is 24 km away from Anogia Mylopotamos and 78 km from Rethymno. It does not have a special cave-like value, but it has an enormous archaeological and cultural value, as it was the cave that, according to myth, grew the greatest god of antiquity, Zeus. Today Idaho Andros receives thousands of tourists from all over Crete every year, especially during the summer months. It is situated at an altitude of 1538 m and its large entrance is placed on the area rupture, while parallel surfaces of the cave appear inside the cave. At the entrance of the cave, which is slightly downhill with a large room afterwards, but also inside, there are folds of "squat limestone". Geologically, the cave is not particularly impressive since it is devoid of decorative and great development, although near the entrance there are three imposing stalactites. It is a cave of 800sqm which has a large central hall and a 22m long sidewalk. It is divided into three chambers and the sanctuary. The access to the chambers takes place on a slope, while some areas of a small gothic decoration are observed. ”
