Legends of Crete


One of the most important parts of the Cretan culture and heritage are the Legends and the Folklore Traditions, some of which, we will try to live up and require their resurgence through texts and words...

The Legends were created by people, from various situations that had been through, and because they could not explain those situations differently, they attributedthem in legends, that is to say in unreal stories that exceeded the human logic. The Legends, expanded from mouth to mouth, from generation to generation, until today that is given to us the opportunity to read about them, via a lot of authors that have made studies on these Legends.
