Rethymno’s beach is spreading from the centre of the town, along the new part, for 12km, to the east. The beautiful beach of Rethymno, is the main -and sometimes the exclusive- attraction for the visitors. But there are some interesting monuments and sights to visit:

Ibrahim Han Mosque

rethymno rooms for rent Ibrahim Han Mosque

A landmark of Rethymno, inside Fortezza. Originally the Cathedral of St. Nicolas, built in 1583 during the Venetian possession, the church was converted into a mosque during the Turkish occupation in 1648, by the Sultan Ibrahim Khan. Its impressive semi-spherical 11m diameter dome is one of the largest in Greece. The remnants of the base of the minaret which once stood there can be seen on the northwestern side of the mosque. Today the mosque is not open for visitors.
