A detailed program of the festivities is available by the beginning of April each year.

Cretan Art

Crete's most important Byzantine artist, Michalis Damaskinos, and the world famous, Cretan born, El Greco himself spent some time in Crete’s monasteries. Knossos Beach will arrange for you visits to come closer to the arts of Crete:

  • Byzantine Art
  • Weaving loom & Lace work
  • Painting lessons
  • Photography (of special sites)
  • Traditional Pottery & Glass Blowing. The pottery in Thrapsano since Minoan time 3000BC

Cretan Hospitality

Go back in time in a visit to some of the Cretan Villages, where people live at their own slow pace. Their houses are open to every visitor and if you refuse their treats, there is a big chance you will be offending them.

Nature Walks

A large part of the healthy Cretan lifestyle is the walking they do daily. The Knossos Beach Team can assist you in planning half day or full day excursions into the natural settings of Crete. Choose leisurely walks in breath taking fields and hills, or vigorous hikes through mountains and gorges.

Cretan Monasteries & Churches

Crete’s Monasteries – for long Cretans sanctuaries – are well preserved and found in the most iconic places of Crete. The Byzantine Churches include collections of impressive icons and frescoes, interesting architecture and interior decoration.

Some interesting samples are:

  • Arkadi Monastery
  • Panagia Kera Church
  • Agarathos Monastery
  • Zaros Monastery
  • Agia Triada Monastery
  • Preveli Monastery
