CRETAN FEAST

A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE


There are so many opportunities to explore Cretan life: good music, endless dances and the festival culture under the full moon, next to the sea, within vineyards or on the top of the mountains. Feasts all over the island celebrate religious holidays, weddings or baptisms and they are always an occasion to eat, drink and celebrate life with family and friends. Usually these occasions are confined to locals.­

EXPERT TIP


The most famous celebrations all around Greece are the festivals to honor the saint-protector of each village.

Locals are gathered to enjoy local food, exchange the famous “mantinades”, which are improvised rhymes to celebrated different occasions such as love, life or friendship; they sing and dance to the small hours!
