More than 100,000 Cretans on compulsory labor and over 40,000 pack animals were used in the construction of this mighty fortress. However, the Fortezza was conquered by the Turks in 1646.

The Fortezza is visible from every part of the town and provides the visitor a panoramic view of Rethymno town. The visitors enter from the East Gate through an impressive archway.

What people are saying about Bali, Crete

Where to begin, with this fantastic experience? We truly enjoyed ourselves on this tour. While the very comfortable transport from Zach, the sights, villages and culinary delights of Lassithi and Crete, the highly impressive Cave of Zeus (that really satisfied our Zeus-fanatic), an engaging and detailed private tour at Knossos Palace all contribute, our guide Alex shone and really made the tour a must do. His enthusiasm, ability to engage and captivate the whole family, wealth of knowledge, warmth and apparent deep friendship with everyone on Crete elevated our experience beyond anything comparable. The tour company was also very flexible and accommodated a change in drop-off, so we could meet friends in a last minute plan, followed by a later additional pick-up to take us back to our hotel, over an hour away.
