Crete Spili Rethymno: Spili is a picturesque village located at an altitude of 430 metres and 28 km south-east of Rethymno Town. Due to its fabulous location the village offers an astonishing view to the sea and the entire surrounding filled with trees, fountains, springs and chapels and churches with wonderful murals.
The main square of the village is lovely and has a fine stone fountain constituted by a row of stone carved lion heads from where crystal clear water flows.
The village is famous for producing unique weaving. The important battle of Mesara, one of the many against the Turkish occupation, took place in 1833 in the village of Spili. In 1941, the village was destroyed by the Germans during World War II.
A few taverns and accommodations are available in Spili. Some interesting Byzantine churches and a medieval tower are quite interesting to visit, as well as a wonderful beach with pristine waters in the surrounding area.
