This cultural walk is one of the events of the “Rethymnon Days” in October.
Starting time: 14th October 11.00
Starting point: Tsikalarios, at the basketball court, Margarites
Margarites is 25 km east of Rethymnon.
Signs of the end of the Byzantine Period and the domination of the Venetians. Signs of the reconciliation of the alloys and the Cretan Renaissance, as well as the struggle of the inhabitants to survive… the old houses and churches, the narrow streets and the Margaritan narratives.
Margarites today is known for its pottery art, which keeps the village alive!
Starting from the old Tsikalaria, we will walk to see the traditional ceramics workshops, the black soil and, of course, the modern pottery of the village.
