Kissamos

Kissamos (or Kisamos) is a town located in the northwestern part of the prefecture of Chania, between the two large peninsulas of the western Crete, and is 37 km from the city of Chania.

In Crete, Kisamos is also called as Kasteli, a name derived from the period of the Venetian rule, because of the fortress built here by the Venetians (in Greek Kasteli means Castle-Fortress).

So, if you hear the name Kasteli or Kasteli Kissamou, both refer to the town of Kisamos which is the seat of the municipality of Kisamos, extending to the west and southwest, up to the southwestern corner of the island.
