Authentic ceramics by Manolis Patramanis made on Crete, Greece
Crete is a very large island! The map above shows it in scale with the rest of Greece and the other Greek islands
The island of Crete is part of Greece, which, of course is part of the European Union!
Crete is the largest Greek island, situated at the southern end of the Aegean Sea in the Sea of Crete, the island of Gavdos off our south coast is the most southerly point in Europe.
To the south is the Libyan Sea, the Libyan city of Tobruk is only about 180km (110miles) to the south. The south coast of Crete lies roughly along the line of latitude 35°N of the Equator (about the same as Osaka, Japan and slightly north of Atlanta, USA) and longitude 25°E of Greenwich passes just west of Heraklion, the capital.
Crete is approximately 365km (230miles) east to west and 60km (38 miles) north to south at the widest point, so you can forget about driving around the island in a day or even a week!
