Frangokastello is a quiet, charming, peaceful and traditional village, without night clubs, discos and motorised water sports. It lies along the coast in a fertile plain. You find several other huge sandy beaches on short distance. The White Mountains are always in sight, and offer several hiking paths, and famous gorges to cross.
Frangokastello took its name from the Venetian castle built there in 1371. In 1828 a celebrated battle for independence was fought against the Turks at Frangokastello. Hundreds of Sfakians led by Hadzi Michali Daliani, a Greek adventurer attempting to spread the War of Independence from mainland Greece to Crete. Instead of hiding in the mountains, as most rebels did in this area, he stayed in the castle with his soldiers. Unfortunately, they were massacred and their martyrdom became legendary. Locals will claim that to this day, on or around the 17th of May, the ghosts of Daliani and his army march from the castle in the soft light of dawn. They are called 'drossoulites', or dew shadows.
There are road connections to the west, to Chora Sfakion, and to the east and north. An ideal place for your sightseeing trips on our beautiful island.
Frangokastello is 75 km from Chania airport and 150 kilometers from Heraklion airport.
