Gramvousa is referred in one very popular Cretan song, 'Stis Gramvousas to akrotiri' which translates to 'At the Cape of Gramvousa'. This song talks about Tzekas, a fisherman born around 1900, who was always fishing around that area with his boat named 'Kiriakos'. In 1966, he disappeared while finishing around Gramvousa Cape. Tzekas didn't know to play any instruments but he was able to whistle exceptionally and he made up songs just by whistling.
