Kastelli hill

Kastelli hill Review

The hill where the Venetians first settled rises above the east end of the harbor and it became the quarter of the local nobility, and their palaces, spartially in ruin from neglect and World War II bombings, still line the ridge above the harbor. Kastelli had been occupied much earlier: parts of what may be a Minoan palace have been excavated at the base of the hill.
