A FEW WORDS ABOUT HISTORY OF APOKORONAS
Kalyves are located opposite the entrance of the gulf of Souda in the ancient area of Ippokoronio which was named like this because the whole area was fertile and green and for this reason it was chosen for the horses of the king to graze (the horses of korona)
Kalyves owe their contemporary name to the Arab pirates who in 828 A.D. Built in the area huts to stay in. In the west of Kalyves there is the small village “Kalami” with “Itzedin fortess” , which was built during the Turkish domination and later it was used as a prison for those sentenced to death.
