Turn left and follow all the next signs for another 2 km of uphill road to the stadium.

More data: The Municipal (formerly "National") Stadium of Rethymno Gallos has one single roofed stand on its west side. It used to hold 1,600 spectators, but the installation of plastic seats on its central part reduced capacity to about 1,300. Although the stadium is extremely small, it is today in very good shape. It is now not used by EAR (the professional club no longer exists after the relegation from the 3rd Division in 1999), however Gallos Rethymno Stadium is host to the Vardinoyannia annual International Athletics Meeting.

The stadium is owned by the Municipality of Rethymno.
