Beautiful indeed.... Beautiful island, beautiful Orthodox Churches , and beautiful Cretan People.. Strong Orthodox Christians with strong families, no feminism on this island and that is why the Church is strong and the family is strong and the communities are strong... When are people going to wake up..
