Cheese Products

Livestock farming and the production of cheese products are particularly popular and famous, not just in Heraklion, but everywhere in Crete.

Therefore, during your stay here, you should definitely try and buy some of the delicious local cheese products, such as traditional Cretan graviera cheese (hard cheese that matures for 3 months before it is sold), kefalotyri cheese (made from sheep and goat milk) and anthotiro cheese (soft cheese made from adding fresh milk to whey).
