I know this meal isn't traditionally Cretan, but you can always tell the quality of an islands food through it's street style food. This was the best kalamaki I've ever had!!!! I also ate a dakos salad but I was so hungry that I didn't take pics. Yamas! What is your favorite Cretan food?
During the Venetian occupation of Crete, the area was commonly used to harvest salt. It was also used as a leper colony. Now, the island is a top residence for tourists, who love exploring the pebbled beaches and old fortress that once housed Greece’s lepers. Now it is the most popular archaeological site in Crete after Knossos. Pretty eerie, but totally worth checking out.
I swear Greece is one of the only places where visiting monasteries is like a must do! Toplou monastery is so stunning and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to see some less touristy sites in Greece!
