Information about Frangokastello
Frangokastello is a small village located on the island of Crete, in Greece. It is situated on the southern coast of the island, about 50 kilometers east of the city of Chania. The village is known for its beautiful beaches and crystal-clear waters and stunning views of the surrounding mountains which attract many tourists every year.
The history of Frangokastello dates back to the 14th century, when the Venetians built a fortress there to protect the island from pirates and invaders. The fortress, known as the Frangokastello Castle, is still standing today and is one of the main attractions of the village. The castle has a rectangular shape with four towers at its corners, and it was built using local stones and marble. Inside the castle, there are several rooms and halls, including a chapel, a well, and a courtyard.
The castle was named after the Venetian governor who ordered its construction, Francesco Morosini. However, the locals referred to it as the "Castle of the Franks," which eventually became Frangokastello in Greek. The castle played a crucial role in the island's history, as it was used as a military base by the Venetians and later by the Ottoman Turks.
In 1770, the Frangokastello Castle was the site of a famous battle between the Ottoman Turks and the local Cretan rebels. The rebels, led by a man named Daskalogiannis, fought bravely against the much larger Ottoman army, but they were ultimately defeated. Daskalogiannis was captured and executed, and the castle was left in ruins.
Today, the Frangokastello Castle is a popular tourist destination, and many visitors come to see the well-preserved ruins and learn about its history. The castle is open to the public, and visitors can explore its rooms and halls, as well as the courtyard and the chapel
