Voulgaro

Village in Innahorion Villages

Idyllic Voulgaro is located 9km southeast of Kissamos (Kastelli) on the inland road towards Elafonisi. Its name (by allusion, ‘Bulgarian village’) is said to descend from the identity of settlers brought to the place when Byzantine Emperor Nikiforos Fokas recaptured Crete from the Arabs in the 961 expedition to Crete.
