Panormo Village in Rethimnon

Panormo is a lovely village located in the north coast of Crete, 22 kilometers east from Rethymno with population of about 370 residents. The village is famous for its beautiful sandy beach and the fish tavernas beside the sea.

In the area, there are many interesting sights that everyone should have a chance to visit. One of them is the ruins of the church of St. Sophia, built in the 5th century AD, the early Christian times and excavated in the year of 1948. It was one of the biggest Christian Royal churches of Greece. In the cave of Hondrokavos, which is located 800 meters away from the village, there is an exquisite lighthouse, where you can enjoy a superb view of the sea and the land. The sunset from that spot is a magical experience that no one can describe with words. An abandoned, old Carob Mill Factory -industrial monument- has converted to the modern cultural venue “Charoupomylos” by a local cultural society, where many unique cultural events take place. Panormo has also a port for small boats, open to the east and protected from northern winds. There are also boat fuelling facilities.
