At the beautiful and historical Melidoni, a village with a Venetian past





If you ever decide to visit the famous cave of Melidoni do not miss the opportunity to visit the village of Melidoni, as well.

Located about 28km east of Rethymno, It is a beautiful place full of old buildings, alive evidences of the period when Crete was under the rule of the Republic of Venice.


The name of the village comes from the  Byzantine family of Melidoni or from a record keeping which counted up a thousand women, in Italian: mille done.

In Melidoni you can find more than a hundred wells and among them  the "royal well", at the main square of the village.


Many people of Melidoni took part at the Greek Revolution against the Ottoman Turks, in 1821, but those, whose name wrote history, were the Melidoni brothers, George, Helias and Antoni.

It is worth visiting the old monastery of Saint George, the church of which survived through the ages.


Nowadays Melidoni is a vivid place registered in a list of villages of high cultural heritage.
