Ierapetra (Kales) Castle

Ierapetra (Kales) Castle

Like Siteia castle, the fortifications here were originally set in place by Enrico Pescatore, in the early part of the 13th century, though almost everything visible nowadays is Venetian, or in the case of the garrison, Turkish. The fortifications form a perfect rectangle, with the walls running east to west, being 50 metres in length, and those running north to south, 25 metres long.
