contribution to the development of culture
Our progress is accompanied by the development of the societies that sustain us. We support and work with local businesses, local communities and their residents in order to protect local culture, customs and traditions, improve spiritual, social and cultural development and ensure their overall well-being.
The Cultural Association of Friends of Tradition "Nostos", based in Arolithos, the Traditional Cretan Village, is focused on the tradition and customs of our country. Our aim is to highlight in a variety of ways the tradition and strengthen the identity of Crete. The action of the club is the "MITIDA" multimodel polytropic knowledge. Through an action plan focusing on education and culture, we organise educational programmes and seminars.
