As part of our efforts to embrace our cultural heritage and promote local artisans, we have established Agora, a curated art and craft bazaar that showcases high-quality Cretan handicrafts from local artists. Choose among handmade jewelry, loom-woven rugs, ceramics, traditional Cretan knives, hand-painted icons, blown glass items, leather products, and bronze creations to take home with you.
Combine this exciting souvenir-hunting excursion with the unique opportunity to connect with artists on the spot and attend their workshops. Ceramic artists throw pots on the wheel right in front of you, crafters engrave your name on your Cretan knife, and weavers display the traditional weaving techniques on the loom. You are invited to watch, but also try to create something on your own. The Agora Market is an excellent opportunity to dive into the Cretan culture.
