What to Know Before Visiting Frangokastello

Apartments and hotels in Frangokastello from Crete Island

Fragokastello is a Venetian fortress that was built in 1371 and is located on the beautiful white sandy beach of Crete’s south coast. It is situated approximately 170 km from Heraklion, 70 km from Rethimnon, and 70 km from Chania.

Today, Fragokastello is a small but growing community that offers limited but expanding tourist facilities and stunning beaches covered in sand dunes. In addition to the castle’s history, there are several fascinating aspects of this area that visitors can explore.

Two charming villages, Patsianos and Kalikratis, are worth exploring while visiting Fragokastello. Patsianos is known for its traditional architecture and beautiful churches, while Kalikratis offers breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. Visitors can also explore the castle’s walls and towers to get a sense of what life was like in medieval times.

One of the most mysterious occurrences in the area is the phenomenon of Drossoulites, or the “dew men.” These ghostly figures are said to appear at dawn every May and October and disappear as the sun rises, leaving behind only dew on the ground. This phenomenon has fascinated locals and visitors alike for years and adds to the allure of Fragokastello.
