Cheese Products

Farming and cheese production is particularly widespread and well-known not only in Chania, but all over Crete.

Therefore, during your stay in the beautiful Chania, you have no choice but to try or buy some of the delicious local cheese products, such as Chania pihtogalo (fresh soft cheese with a creamy texture and slightly sour flavor produced only in Chania), traditional Cretan graviera (hard cheese which takes 3 months to mature), kefalotiri (made form a mixture of sheep's and goat's milk) and anthotiro (soft cheese made with additional fresh milk and milk whey).
