Gramvousá, Khania, Greece

October 26, 2017

Gramvousa was the first part of Cretan land that was liberated from the Ottoman occupation. It became the base of the Cretan fight for freedom and almost 3000 warriors were settled there. They utilized guerrilla welfare tactics and ambush Turks usually during night. The got the name 'kalisperides' (derived from the Greek word for good evening) because when they ambush the Turks they used to knock on their doors and say 'kalispera' wishing them a good evening
