CRETE VILLAGES PALEOHORA

PALEOHORA
About 75 Km from Chania on the south part of Crete (Libyan sea) is located Paleochora (or Paliohora) behind a Venetian castle on a small peninsula. Below the castle there is a small fishing harbour and an islet to the Southwest. Daily boat connection exist with Sougia, Agia Roumeli, Hora Sfakion, Loutro and Elafonisi. Finally there is a boat to Gavdos, Europe's southest spot.

The old name of the town was Selino Kastelli because of the Venetian castle which was built in 1279 A.D. on the tip of the peninsula to control the two bays to the east and west. In 1539 the pirate Barbarossa conquered and destroyed it. Today the castle has been renovated and attracts thousands of visitors every year.
