Rethymno is one of the few old medieval towns in such good and complete condition.
Visible is the Venetian and the Ottoman heritage seen in the lay out of the town as well as its buildings. Most old towns and cities depending on the season and light change ambiance. The square of the Asia Minors Greeks, once a orchid of the Venetians, Part of the Monastery of St. Frances and finaly a school that still functions today.
The emblematic entrance of Monastery and later school as well as one of the narrow alleys in old town..
Winter takes a hold of the old town until spring uplifts it again into summer.
