Roussospiti is a local community of the Rethymno Municipality and it is a traditional settlement located southeast of Rethymno. The village lies on the slope of Vrisinas at an altitude of 300 meters. It was built in the 12th century by Venetians, as evidenced by the Venetian buildings in the village (arches, gates, fountain). At that time, a house ("spiti", in Greek) was built in the village, and this was called "Russo", i.e. red (russo+spiti=red house), and the village took its name after that. Others say that a Russian (Roussa) woman had built a house in the village, and that could be the origin of its name (the house of the Russian =roussospiti). Apart from many Venetian houses, there is also a fountain of the 17th century and the church of Virgin Mary in this settlement. You can enjoy magnificent sea view to the north.Monastery of Aghia Irini (Saint Eirene), is situated near Roussospiti. This very old monastery is considered to date back to the 14th century. Also worthy is a visit to Chromonastiri Military Museum that is nearby.
A car should be convenient for your own transportation. Parking is available and free in front of the apartment. There is though a bus stop nearby.
