Major restoration of Frangokastello castle - 12 July, 2018
The decision to join the "Crete 2014-2020" Operational Program (NSRF) for the restoration of an iconic historical monument for Crete, Frangokastello Fortress in Sfakia, with a funding of 980,000 euros, was signed yesterday by Stavros Arnaoutakis, Regional Governor of Crete.
It concerns a very important project for Sfakia, including the restoration of the fractured walls of Frangokastello fortress, restoration and the reconstruction of the towers as well as internal spaces in the first phase of the project, in order to become an exhibition space.
This project has a second phase that includes the restoration of internal spaces where cultural events will be held inside the fortress and the completion of the project requires a budget of about 3 million.
The Fortress of Frangokastello is of the 14th century, and is a very important monument, emblematic not only for Sfakia and the Regional Unity of Chania, but for the whole of Crete, and also for the Hellenic area because of its size and its relatively excellent conservation status.
