Journey to Greece Blue Palace Resort Elounda raditional Cheese


There are so many opportunities to celebrate life in Crete: good music, endless dances and the festival culture under the full moon, next to the sea, within vineyards or on the top of the mountains. Feasts all over the island celebrate religious holidays, weddings or baptisms and they are always an occasion to eat, drink and celebrate life with family and friends. Usually these occasions are confined to locals.
