Coming to Heraklion for the first time, the visitor nowadays may be somewhat surprised by the changes that are taking place in Crete”s capital city; Heraklion is celebrating its rich history and moving onwards to a future full of potential.
Where, at one time, the number of cars in the city centre would have made walking difficult, you will now find large city-centre spaces cleared of traffic. You can enjoy walking in one of the most historically and socially fascinating cities facing the Mediterranean, on streets free from traffic noise and rush. The city has opened up in so many ways, making the city a place of discovery. These changes bring a harmony too; between the traditionally warm, considerate people of Heraklion, and the fine buildings that surround us, the open public spaces and views over the ocean. Many landmarks tell their story about the city and the island that gave birth to gods, to rebellion, and to a place that inspires everyone who feels the spirit of Crete.
Heraklion today is living between the fast moving currents of regeneration and a deep desire to maintain links with a past. Both these strands define its character. In the last hundred years alone, we have seen huge changes, which can be quite easily followed, in buildings and streets that reflect the changing fortunes of Crete. The ‘old town” areas of the city, established from mediaeval times, now offer visitors some fantastic walks in the heart of the city. Continue reading “Heraklion”
Starting early in the morning until about 2pm, the open market of Pateles is a sight on its own. This is because here you will not only find great stuff to shop, but you will also experience the melting pot of Heraklion society: Gypsies selling clothes and villagers selling their products, classy ladies checking out imitations of expensive brands, and family guys doing their weekly shopping. The fame of Pateles market has reached the tourist industry and it has become common to see passengers of cruise ferries wandering around with maps in their hands. But what can you find in this market? Well, apart from the typical fruit and vegetables (most of which are produced in Crete) you will also find spices, dairy products, olives, herbs and honey in very good prices. So far, so good…until you reach the clothing section! The first thing that will cross your mind is that everything you see is bad quality or fake (and in some cases it is true). However, most clothes you see are last season’s, sold to gypsies by the kilo and many come from popular (and expensive) stores. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you will not see imitations of popular brands, but the experienced eye of regular shoppers (and brand connoisseurs) have learned to tell the difference! If you are lucky, you will find original brands of clothes and shoes at very low prices, as well as other surprises, such as used books for 3 euros. Continue reading “The open market of Heraklion”
