  • Argyroupoli is a mountain village about 30 km from Rethymnon and 10 km from Episkopi. On the territory of the present-day Argyroupoli, the town of lappa was in ancient times. Their history goes back up in the late geometric period of ancient Greece, from the earliest finds. Remains of buildings, Venetian Villas, mosaics point to the long history of the place. The settlement area of Argyroupolis Azona nestles on the Northwestern slope of the mountain above the fertile plain of the river of Mouselas. The village consists of an upper and a lower part. About 50 metres below the village buildings are the Agia Dynami, ten sources of Mouselas, the water of which was used to operate Mills, including mills of the 19th century, in the past. Today, Cafés for visitors of the place are here. The so-called falls are definitely worth a visit, especially if you are looking for something cool on warm summer days. Definitely referred to children as an experience, since this area as 'Trout land'. In the cool waters of the source, the local taverns holding fish. The local also Cretan specialities include fish. The best time to eat is in the afternoon, as evening close taverns.

Where to stay in Rethymnon

A growing number of visitors to Rethymnon choose to stay in one of the surrounding villages, where air-conditioned rooms near well-developed beaches cost considerably less than in the city itself. The elegant guesthouses just outside town provide a quiet night's sleep, as well as quick access to good shopping and dining options. If you prefer to stay in the thick of things, book a room near the city's Venetian port, a lively area that's just a walk away from the center's major attractions.
