Discover Crete: Planet Earth in a miniature!
The island of Crete, being the fifth largest in the Mediterranean Sea, is located in the centre of Mediterranean among three continents.
Its unceasing geological history as well as its location on the atlas has forged a unique landscape. This can explain the vast variety in the flora and fauna of the island and the harmony in the coexistence of different ecosystems that appear on this relatively narrow land. This includes alpine scenery, valleys, isolated gorges, the wild highlands and the golden beaches, cliffs and plateaus as well as caves and underwater springs.
