Between Loutro Sfakion and the famous beach of Glyka Nera, at Perlovakia, we meet the white brushed chapel of the Holy Cross (Timios Stavros) where a big feast takes place on September 14th every year.
At the site where the chapel is built, there used to be a fortress, the ruins of which are still visible today. The construction of the fort is adapted to the intense slope of the ground and a part of it is semicircular. It has played an important role in the region, but in some battles, it seems to have been completely destroyed. The koules (Turkish Fort) communicated with the forts of Sfakia and Loutro.
