Rethymno: Between East And West Self-Guided Mobile Tour

3. Rethymno: Between East And West Self-Guided Mobile Tour

This is a self-guided mobile tour provided by a tour-guide app. The tour is based on an award-winning storytelling concept and the fascinating narratives prepared by handpicked destination experts. Enjoy this multilingual tour by using your Android or iOS smartphone or tablet at your own pace, even if you are offline. The interactive map on your screen will guide you step by step to explore all the points of interest along your route. Each stop comes with a selection of signature stories, allowing you to tailor this experience to your personal interests and schedule. Rethymno: between East and West is a tour through space and time. It begins with the purchase of Crete by the Venetians in 1210 and culminates in the struggle for union with Greece in the late 19th Century. As you walk from the Venetian harbor to the heart of the city you are constantly reminded of the town’s tumultuous past. Fortifications preserve the memory of the bloody conflicts between the Venetians and the Ottomans for control of Crete and the Mediterranean. Mosques and churches glorify the generals, admirals, bishops, artists, and pirates that once fought and triumphed (or perished) here. Every building has a story to tell. The Kara Musa Pasha Mosque was initially a Venetian monastery dedicated to Saint Barbara, but upon the city’s conquest, the Ottomans replaced the roof with a dome and added a minaret. Today the complex houses the Byzantine Antiquities Department. There is even a distant connection with Miguel Cervantes, the celebrated author of Don Quixote. The Spanish writer fought in the Battle of Lepanto (1571) and in his writings he mentions Uluç Pasha, a Roman Catholic from Italy who was captured by the Turks, converted to Islam and rose to become an Ottoman admiral and ruler of Algiers. Along the way he managed to capture and plunder Rethymno a few months before his participation in the battle of Lepanto, opposite Cervantes.

This was an amazing experience. Aspassia, our hostess, was a delightful, friendly and experienced lady. She explained all about the different kinds of olive oil and had us sample a few. This was then followed by wonderful Cretan plates to sample with the different oils. We went back home to check all the information on our current olive oil bottles :) I would definitely recommend this activity to anyone who is looking for a nice, relaxing afternoon in an olive grove.

This meal was one of the highlights of our trip to Crete. Sitting in a family owned olive grove, we were introduced to the flavors and recipes of the healthiest food culture in the world with authenticity and heart. Will recommend to everyone in the area.

Excellent VR rendering, guide was extremely helpful and also provided a wheelchair.

Such a beautiful setting and loved learning & tasting different olive oils.

A great idea, that's how history becomes clear.
