Honoring the International Museum Day

The hospitality industry is inextricably linked to the monuments, cultural sites and museums of every place. Visitors tend to choose their excursion destinations based on natural attractions as well as museums and archaeological sites.


The Aldemar Resorts Group has hospitality units in two places of unparalleled beauty and importance, Skafidia in Ilia and Hersonissos in the municipality of Heraklion on the island of Crete. Guided by its Values, Aldemar Resorts Group, recognizing the major importance of the role of the museums in each region, promotes and supports these sites and locations.


Museums are a cradle of culture and the Aldemar Resorts Group understands the important role they play in modern society. Museums nowadays become vehicles for cultural exchange, enhancing education, promoting mutual understanding and leading people to cooperation and peace.
