Kazarma Fortress

The fortifications around the city of Sitia and the imposing Kazarma date back to the end of the Byzantine period. Apparently, the Venetians had used Sitia as a base for their operations in the Eastern Mediterranean. Above the older ruins are the imposing buildings of the Venetian fortress of Kazarma and the feudal towers that are scattered in the area. The name Kazarma came from the Italian Casa di Arma which means barracks. The Venetians had built the most imposing and massive monument of Sitia! Kazarma was mainly a military base, but it was also used as a command center. Kazarma lights up at night during the summer months. It is the center of the cultural life of Sitia and there takes place the Kornaria Festival.
