This war cemetry is situated in an 'off the track' spot at the head of Souda Bay. The grounds are immaculately maintained and the headstones commemorating the fallen in World War II are kept in beautiful condition. Even the small flower beds are well-cared for and laid out with perfect symmetry.
We've visited the cemetry on a number of occasions when visiting Crete and it really is moving to see the headstone inscriptions for so many young servicemen from different countries. The atmosphere is special and ironically peaceful and quiet. The people responsible for the upkeep of the cemetry deserve the highest praise for their care and attention in honouring those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice in the Battle of Crete.
Last visited in July 2012.
