Frangocastello, Crete Island: 7 reviews and 11 photos

  The "Kastle"
by Jmill42

Built in 1371 protect the leader from the local population and to protect the land from pirates of the Mediterranean, the Venetian castle at Frangokastello still remains along Crete's southern coastline. There are many stories about the place being haunted by those who attacked and were thwarted by the castle and its defenders. From a distance, you would think that it is going to be a supercool site to explore, but when you finally enter, there are a few climbs among the towers that can be had, but not much else.

Address: Prefecture of Rethymnon
