Coming up July 19th in Chania, the 4th Cretan World Music Festival takes place at the Kapsomenos Foundation. Organized by the famous jazz violinist and festival founder Maria Manousaki, the event will be located in the picturesque village of Alikianos, which is about 10 kilometers outside of the Crete’s best-known city, Chania.
The White Mountains of Crete (Lefka Ori) are a spectacle to behold. The white capped limestone peaks offer the most dramatic backdrop for an Island so famous for seaside pleasures and ancient seafaring. In fact, the spectacle of sheer cliffs rising into the clouds is almost as awe inspiring as the pristine beaches and aquamarine waters of the Cretan and Libyan Seas that surround Crete.
