Falasarna is also famous for its majestic sunset, which is considered the best

Ancient Falassarna

The ancient town of Falasarna (or Phalassarna) is located at the west base of the peninsula Gramvousa and was one of the major towns

of Crete during the Hellenistic and Roman Era. The city was famous for its port, the only natural harbor in western Crete, built in a small

lagoon.

In antiquity, it was called Korikos, while the name Falasarna was possibly taken after the local nymph Falasarni.

The opponent town in the region was Polirinia, which managed to turn Falasarna to its port after 100 years of conflicts (186BC).

It is believed that Falassarna was a refuge for pirates. This forced the Romans to destroy the city in 69 BC and seal the port forever

giving an end to it’s magnificent history.
