Forts of Sfakia


Fort Kouledaki by Agia Roumeli
(2 votes)

The mountainous and inhospitable province of Sfakia hosts several small and large koules, ie Ottoman towers, which was built by the Ottomans to control this revolutionary area after the Great Revolution of 1866. One of the most unknown forts lies in ruins in the mountains west of the gorge of Samaria and you can reach it via the trail from the Koules of Agia Roumeli. This koule, due to the very small size, is called Kouledaki (small koule) and has eye contact with the two towers of Agelokambos ridge, on the opposite side of the gorge of Samaria.
