Candia (Heraklion), la capitale dell'isola di Creta, è una vibrante città culturale, il cuore e l'anima delle esperienze più autentiche che la vita di Creta ha da offrire. Ogni giorno, centinaia di visitatori raggiungono Heraklion e scoprono i tratti di un passato che li appassiona e li incuriosisce per la sua storia unica e la sua tradizione gastronomica.

L’hotel Legacy Gastro Suites, nella centrale Piazza Eleftherias, è circondato dalle leggende della Fortezza di Koules, dall’unicità delle Mura Veneziane e dai tesori ospitati nel magnifico Museo Archeologico, sede dei misteri della civiltà minoica. Nella stessa zona, una visita al vicino mercato centrale, una gamma di colori, profumi e sapori seduce i vostri sensi e risveglia l’interesse per la cucina locale. Sede della flora più vibrante d'Europa e di infinite tradizioni millenarie, la nostra isola ospita la cucina cretese che è stata riconosciuta dall'UNESCO come patrimonio culturale immateriale.

Creta è una terra incontaminata e fertile dove la cultura del cibo si connette ai sentimenti più genuini di ospitalità. Legacy Gastro Hotel è fiero della valorizzazione della tradizione locale, nonché dei tesori gastronomici della Grecia.
