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:
Valide Sultana Mosque and its minaret
Hidden by the buildings, built next to it, it was built on 1670. The minaret built in 1878, can be seen from the Four Martyrs sq.
