Σε εκείνους που σκέπτονται πως η Ελλάδα σήμερα δεν έχει καμία σημασία ας μου επιτραπεί να πω ότι δεν θα μπορούσαν να κάνουν μεγαλύτερο λάθος. Η σημερινή, όπως και η παλιά Ελλάδα, έχει υψίστη σημασία για οποιονδήποτε ψάχνει να βρει τον εαυτό του.

Χένρυ Μίλλερ, 1891-1980, Αμερικανός συγγραφέας

Greek Easter in Sitia

Greek Easter in Sitia

21 Mar, 2024

The Municipality of Sitia, a region with a long history and rich cultural heritage, is located on the eastern side of Crete. With the picturesque town of Sitia as its center, this area offers a unique combination of natural beauty, traditional architecture, and heritage.

The cobblestone streets of Sitia, the traditional mansions, and the colorful gardens create a charming atmosphere that enchants visitors. The area is surrounded by natural beauty, with the azure waters of the Libyan Sea and the lush hills providing an idyllic landscape for exploration and relaxation.

With a wealth of archaeological treasures, such as ancient temples and archaeological sites, the Municipality of Sitia showcases its cultural heritage. It is a place that integrates the past and the present, offering visitors an experience that enriches the heart and soul.

Welcome to the Municipality of Sitia, a world where history meets nature, and tradition is alive and breathing through every corner.

 

Immerse yourself in the spiritual culture of the Greek Easter and indulge in the rich experience of traditional Cretan food, hospitality and music.

 

Allow me to elaborate on my choice, Why Sitia

Throughout my life, I have traveled extensively—for leisure, business, tourism, and gastronomic exploration. I’ve encountered remarkable destinations with awe-inspiring landscapes, captivating cultures, cherished traditions, delectable cuisine, and warm hospitality. I’ve visited places steeped in ancient history and others that offer the tranquility of the sea and the majesty of mountains.

Yet, there’s one place that encapsulates all these qualities, along with an extraordinary, gentle human nature, and that’s Sitia!

 

It offers:

NATURE – CULTURE – GASTRONOMY – HOSPITALITY

 

So, why attempt to squeeze in 4 or 5 different destinations in your 8 or 10 days of vacation, only to become weary of traveling and miss the chance to truly acquaint yourself with one place and its people? The enduring memories etched in your heart and mind stem from the connections you forge with people—to assimilate into the local culture, experience their way of life, explore the surroundings, and savor the beautiful cuisine that contributes to their health, happiness, and longevity.
