A walk in Atsipopoulo Village...
It is built almost in the center of Northern Crete in Atsipopoulo Village, 5 km from Rethymno city.
The village of Atsipopoulo is strategically placed and therefore it has seen many battles against the Turks. The houses are closely built to each other and are easily converted to a fortress in times of need. The residents realized the architectural value of their homes and respected and up kept them. In this way Atsipopoulo today upholds the traditional look and sophistication of Venetian years. Its neighborhoods, its churches and spellbinding alleys will charm the visitor. Walking through the side streets they will find themselves under Venetian galleries and arches.
