The History of Bali
Bali, Crete, was once a quiet fishing village situated in a bay that faces east, resulting in generally calm seas. However, due to its natural beauty and friendly waters, it became an ideal location for tourism development. Today, Bali retains its charm and is a convenient destination for visitors. This region of Crete boasts a rich Venetian heritage, which can be seen in nearby Rethymno and Heraklion. Both of these port cities feature a romantic mood, thanks to the Venetian influence in the architecture. Bali itself is situated on the site of the ancient Roman city of Astale, in a region that was once the heart of the advanced Bronze Age civilization of the Minoans, which thrived from 2700 to 1450 BC.
