Old Town Malia

The old town of Malia is well worth strolling around. Like a labyrinth, the small streets lead you to unexpected places, such as beautiful old churches and small squares with restaurants, some of them with live music.

In old Malia there are still old houses with courtyards full of flowers, children play in the street in the warm summer evenings, and adults bring their chairs outside and sit with the neighbours for the veggera, the way people used to spend the evenings in Crete of old: chatting about the village news, a bit of gossip, a few jokes and teasing.
