Anogia  

Anogia - Rethymno Prefecture (Greece)

Anogia. The village of Anogia, on the Greek island of Crete is located 20 km from Rethymnon town. Anogia is situated on the edge of the Ida plateau. In the Second World War, all men were carried away by the German overlords, in retaliation. The men never returned. From that moment the women were totally alone. In that time, they started to weave to earn their livelihood. Today the village is still known for its beautiful handmade rugs that you can buy there in abundance. The merchandise is displayed on the streets. This creates colourful streets where old ladies under colourful umbrellas, try to sell their handmade rugs to tourists. In the village are lots of good tavernas where Cretan specialties are offered.
