Stop At: Fragokastello Beach, Sfakia, Greece

Fragokastello is located just outside of Sfakia. It was constructed in 1371 by the Venetians, and the legend says that the locals tried in every way to stop its erection by destroying in the evenings the parts built during the day. The name Fragokastello (the fortress of the Franks, ie the Catholics) was given to the new fort by the locals, reflecting and underlying their abhorrence.
Fragokastello however, became known because of the legend of Drosoulites, the Cretan soldiers who died in battle against the Turks and whose shadows ‘appear’ and haunt the fort even to this day…
