Crete dates back to the Bronze Age when it was founded as the cultural center of the Minoan civilization. The remnants of that civilization bears witness that historical period today. However, Crete reached its cultural height when it was swallowed by the Roman Empire. That period brought a lot of wealth to Crete. In World War II German troops, despite the resistance of locals, used the island as a staging post for its campaign in northern Africa.
