Crete the Archaeological Island
Last September, we went for two weeks to relax in Crete-Greece, all we wanted was to lie down the sand, in front of a spectacular sea and do nothing more. Our experience was great, and to discover new places and cultural places has no words. People were always friendly, and the cuisine was remarkably exquisite, starting with all types of fish, lobster, octopus, shrimp and ending of course with the lamb. Almost everything is done on the grill with a touch of lemon, olive oil, and oregano, and despite, the simplicity of the dishes the flavor was incredible.
The beaches… Were beautiful, to stay and never to return, the beaches where stone beach with a spectacular dark blue color, they were like a cup of tea and had a variety of fish that one could be all day at sea admiring that diversity.
Wherever you look you can appreciate that Minoan civilization had left, one of the most flourishing cultures of the time, and the first human settlement in Crete dates before 130,000 years ago, during the Paleolithic age, you can imagine how rich this culture is. All around the island you can see the passage of this important culture, appreciating the remains of palaces, forts, etc. Crete is an island worth visiting and discovering.
