Frangokastello, Crete Overview

Frangokastello is the location for a castle along with some settlement in the south of Crete near Chania.

With the extensive sandy beach and low tourist industry, it is a hit among offbeat tourists. Tourist accommodation is scattered over around the castle, but the area's relative remoteness has discouraged major development. The castle was built by the Venetians in 1371-74 and was named St. Nikitas, after the nearby church.The castle has a simple rectangular shape, with a tower at each corner. The buildings within the walls, as well as the battlements, were constructed during the Ottoman Turkishæoccupation.
