The medieval quarter of Rethymno Town within which Rimondi Boutique Hotels are located, constitutes a truly romantic and picturesque setting that will absolutely fascinate you. This wonderful town has justifiably earned the title “City of Arts and Letters” as it displays cultural traces of at least 4.500 years.

Apparently, its multiple conquerors over the centuries had consecutively fallen in love with its ambience and this is why they all dedicated to it elaborate monuments, buildings, temples and other admirable specimens of unique beauty that will convey you to a past epoch. Admire the Fortezza Fortress, the Loggia, the Church of St. Francis and the mosques of Neratze and Kara Musa Pasha to mention just a few…
