The inhabitants of Crete are known for their quirky personalities, much more so the inhabitants of the mountains.
Most of them are breeders and love the White Mountains, or Madares, and consider them their home.
Hospitality is in their blood. They love foreigners and are pleasant, cheerful and hospitable people.
They keep to the local customs and traditions and many of them still wear traditional clothes; a reminder of older times.
One could very well characterize them as custodians of tradition, although tradition is present everywhere on the island.
Although the traditional character of the island remains intact all along its mountains.
Authenticity is the main attribute of these people.
From interacting with them, one can immediately realize that this place has a true soul and is a living organism that is increasingly enchanting.
