Panormos, Rethymnon Crete

Situated 22 kilometers far from Rethymnon, at the East, Panormos is a beautiful picturesque village by the sea, with approximately 900 permanent residents. The village is built at the place of the homonymous ancient town.

It is worth seeing the Basilica of Aghia Sophia, dating back to the Early Christian period (5 th century), brought to light by excavations carried out in 1948. It is the bigger church of the period in Crete.

An interesting Byzantine church, dedicated to Zoodochos Pigi ("the Source of Life") is found in the village of Prinos, some 12 kilometers at the West. The church has interesting paintings of the 13 th century, and it is built in a marvelous environment within a ravine.

At the same area you may visit the Monument in honor of the Deads of the World War II.
