One of the prominent attractions to the city is the fortress 'Fortezza', it dominates Rethymnon and is one of the best preserved castles in Crete. Certainly worth a visit and also providing some beautiful panoramic views overlooking Rethymnon city. The Venetian influence in the city can be seen throughout the old town and proves to be one of the best examples in Crete.
