What to Know Before Visiting Prophitis Ilias Town

Apartments and hotels in Prophitis Ilias Town from Crete Island

Profitis Ilias, also known as Roka, is a town located 20km south of Heraklion in Crete. The town is situated on two hills that provide a natural fortification and offer a stunning view of the surrounding areas. Its strategic location has led to suggestions that the ancient city of Lycastos was built here. The town is also known as Kandli Kasteli due to the castle located at the summit of a rock southeast of the town. The Byzantine castle of Temenos was built by Nikiforos Fokas in 961 to free the island from the Saracens. The castle was later occupied by the Genoese Pescatore in the thirteenth century and by the Venetians. The name Kanli Kastelli in Turkish means blood-painted castle, and it was named after a massacre of Turks by the Venetians and Greeks that took place here in 1647.

Apart from its historical significance, Profitis Ilias is also known for its natural beauty. The town’s location on the hills provides a breathtaking view of the surrounding areas, making it a popular tourist destination. Visitors can enjoy the town’s rich history and natural beauty while taking in the stunning view from the hills. The unique blend of history and natural beauty makes Profitis Ilias a must-visit destination for anyone traveling to Crete.
