Margarites

Between Rethimnon and Heraklion, at the edge of the mountain of Psiloritis, is located the village of Margarites, with it's potteries.

Like in many other smaller villages, most of the locales have left their houses and gone in the city to work there.

The small alleys between the white houses and the surounding area with the olivetrees are the ideal place to make some walks. Some potteries are still working. They are producing mostly souvenirs and less objects for daily usage.
