Location Information:

Kissamos is a town and municipality in the west of the island of Crete. It is part of the Kissamos Province which covers the northwest corner of the island. The city of Kissamos is officially known as Kastelli-Kissamou and often known simply as Kastelli after the Venetian castle that was there. It is now a port and fishing harbour, with a regular ferry from the Peloponnese via Kythira. A town museum is located in the old Venetian governor's palace and there have been important archaeological finds in the town, including fine mosaics, dating from the Roman city of Kissamos, the port of Polirinia (ancient Polyrrhenia). The head town of the municipality is Kastelli-Kissamos itself. The municipality includes the Gramvousa peninsula and islets, and the islet of Pontikonisi, and the villages of Sfinari, Koukounaras, Polirinia, Platanos, Lousakia, Sirikari, Kallergiania and Kalathena.
