    What amazing people Giorgis and Mariniki Dalamvelas are. Their workshop in Crete's legendary ceramic center holds pottery treasures you cannot imagine. This was our second trip to Margarites in search of an artisan capable of recreating Minoan pottery. Fate stuck, and we landed back at Kerameion by the suggestion of my friend, who is the Curator at Knossos Palace.

    A review here cannot portray accurately the skill, artistry, and dedication of these two wonderful Cretans. They have, in effect, brought back to life a ceramic tradition that was the envy of the ancient world. Take note, their functional works of authentic beauty are not simple recreations, they are new Minoan pieces that perpetuate an incomparable civilization.

    If you are on Crete, go here to remember what is possible from the human hard and human hands. A wonderful revisitation, thanks, guys!

    We found it by chance, near the Catholic church and up some stairs. I see others paid entry but we didn't seem to get asked for any money.
    It's an odd assortment of artefacts, nothing too stunning. But worth a look. No explanations in English so treat it as a floor of pot pouri
    There's a lady doing stunning embroidery of rural village life scenes. The bigger ones take her 3 months each and they are impressive. All from her imagination she said. It's worth going just to see these pieces

    If you want to have tasty, nice smelly, wonderful local fruits, vegetables, diary products, you should go to this market. They also have honey, different herbs, olives and olive oil, nuts, and some clothes in the corner of market. Some of seller has organic certificate. But it is quite busy place so it is gonna be not good place for small children.

    There is lot of small shops and mainly with a leather. I guess if it is made of leather you will find it there. It is crowded but nice and fun and everybody want to sell you something.

    This is in the heart of the historic pedestrian area of the town, the lion fountain is just in front and the Town Hall a few meters away. The art exhibition changes so always something different to see. It is housed in a former basilica.

    This gallery has a variety of beautiful work in different mediums. Niko is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about Greek art and typifies the regions hospitality. It was just wonderful getting to know him and learning from him. We ended up getting a couple of pieces including a sculpture of an olive tree that we treasure. Euxaristoume Niko!

    Quality products and a beautiful shop. The tinctures are strong and well labeled, and the herbs nicely dried. If I lived nearby I would be a regular customer for surea

    Kostas was extremely kind and helpful, he told us many stories and traditions of cretans. He has a great vision of what he does and how, we took a goat home to remind us of Crete. Definitely the best shop in Rethymno!

    Very nice place to shop and to eat street food.
    It's close to the port with a great view, you can buy clothes, local food and treats, listen to local music, bags, rags, toys, and more.

    I liked it!

    Strange to see this as you drive in or out of Heraklion because it seems out of character with the area. It isn't far from the Port but far enough to be a way from the city (maybe a 5-10 minute drive depending on how bad the traffic is). It isn't very big and doesn't have a great range of stores. I don't think anyone really comes to Greece for the multiplex shopping though right??? (Well this isn't it if you have). Some tour companies use it as an option for you to park your car for the day if you are driving from outside Heraklion to meet them (it has an undercover car park).
