Agia Galini, Rethymnon Crete

Situated 55 kilometers far from Rethymnon, at the Southeast, Agia Galini

is a big village with 1260 permanent residents, fully developed in a tourist resort and very popular to tourists. The village is built on the site of the ancient town Soulia, the port of the inland Syvritos, whose ruins have been found close to the mountainous village Thronos, some 37 kilometers at the North.

It is worth seeing the Platys Potamos ("large river"), passing through the valley of Agia Galini.

Don't miss to take a drive to the inland village of Melambes, a scenic village ampritheatrically arranged with a beautiful view of Psiloritis, 9 kilometers far from Agia Galini at the Northwest; a few kilometers more at the North there is the village Orne, at the foot of the mountain Kedros.

It is worth visiting "Argo", the Center of Promotion of Fishing Products. The Center has established a small Museum in the old building of the Elementary school of the village. It is displayed the traditional equipment of fishing, along with a fishing boat and there is a good collection of relative photos.

A local feast ("panighyri") takes place on the 15 th of August in honor of the Assumption of Virgin Mary.

Several hotels, studios, rooms to let and a camping offer to the visitor a wide range of accommodation. Taverns and restaurants as well as bars and cafes are available, whereas if you like fresh fish you will have the chance to buy some directly from the fishing boats, just at the moment they arrive.

Access from Rethymnon is possible by public bus, with regular service, and rented or private car and motorbike.

From the small port of the village, caiques depart every day to the beaches Agios Georgios, Agios Pavlos, Preveli lagoon and to the islets Paximadia.
