Fortezza, the Rethymnon Archaeological Museum

view of the old town of Rethymnon from the FortezzaTaking the paved path just in front of the church of Agios Theodoros, we walk down to the Fortezza entrance where we started our tour. Our guide has done a wonderful job and managed to give us a full picture of the impressive fortress.

Outside the entrance to the Fortezza is the Rethymnon Archaeological Museum, there since 1991, which houses important archaeological collections from different periods of the town's history. It's well worth visiting so as to get a better idea of the centuries-long history of Rethymnon.

Art lovers may like to visit the Kanakakis Gallery, with works of modern art by local artists, near the Fortezza and the old harbour.
