The Dryades were wandering nymphs of oak trees, under which they lived. Their name comes from the word ‘’drys’’, meaning oak. According to mythology, Dryades nymphs enjoyed the rain and when the oak trees had no leaves or fruit, they would cry. People used to believe that anyone who protected and cared for the oak tree, committed a sacred act and had the blessing of the Nymphs. On the contrary, when a tree was cut or destroyed, the tree nymph would go to another one and then punishes the person responsible for the destruction.
The Cretan earth is blessed with rich geomorphological peculiarities, waiting to be explored and offered to love a different experience on your vacation. Numerous canyons, caves and unique view of the mountains are some of them that are really worth seeing.
