The Germans' Village


(2 votes)

Kolokasia is a deserted village of Sfakia province, near the exit of the gorge Asfendou and near the village of Agios Nektarios. Its inhabitants mainly abandoned it because of its isolated position and moved to Agios Nektarios. Today most of the houses are dilapidated and some have been restored by some Germans who bought the ruined houses and restored them. The houses are a live sample of the simple traditional architecture of Sfakia.

The current official name of the village is Agios Georgios, after the old church of Saint George. In the village there is also the churches of Lord Christ and the Virgin Mary, while in a rock shelter near the village there is the cavernous church of Saint Anthony.
