akan 14 Jul 2010Beautiful town with good sightseeingWe stayed in a small hotel in the heart of the town, and just a stone throw away from taverns, cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. We took the bus to the nearest beaches, with sparklingly waters and green environment. We visited the Archaeological Museum which is a repository of tools, pottery, weapons and other artifacts that have been unearthed from the area and which represent the time from the Minoan period to the classical period.
One of the highlights of our stay at Sitia was a tour at the winery of the Union of Agricultural Co-operatives. It is on the national road leading from Sitia to Agios Nicolaos. We bought a few bottles of the fine local wine and also saw the old wine making equipment on display at the winery.
At the village of Marounia, we were quite surprised at how the villagers seem to be leading a traditional life far removed and untouched by the commercial aspects of tourism. As a reminder of their old ways, there is a restored oil-press workshop in the village which is still in use. We also got to see the Sultana Raisin festival (celebrated in other places in Crete, too). They had musical events with a lot of singing, dancing and feasting to commemorate the dried fruit of which Sitia has traditionally been one of the major producers in Greece. We had great fun, not to mention the free wine that seemed to be flowing rather generously. The street food was simply amazing.
