Temenos Fortress, Kanli Castelli, Crete.

Temenos Castle. Boschini, Marco. Temenos Castle. "Castel Temene" Venice "Marco Boschini Venetiano, al Serinissima Principe E Regal Collegio di Venetia" 1651
Black & white copper engraved birdseye view/ map of the castle of Temene from Marco Boschini's "Il Regno tutto di Candia"single page; verso blank.
The view/ map shows the castle of Temenos,and the village called Kanli Castelli, today known as Prophet Elijah, The village is situated at the foot of the steep two-peaked hill Rocca, at the start of Malades valley

The hill was ideal for the construction of an impregnable castle, as it dominates throughout the surrounding area. Also, there was a natural fresh water source on Rocca, which fed the fountain Fountana, located inside the fort.

Rocca is believed to be the acropolis of the ancient city Lykastos, mentioned by Homer. Much later, when Nicephorus Phocas liberated Crete from the Saracen pirates in 961AD, he first founded a fort on Rocca, in order to transfer the city of Candia there. The fort was built, but Candia was not moved, as its port was very important for the Cretans. Thus, the fortress was left alone overlooking the region and was named Temenos. Even today, the whole province is called Temenos Province.

During the Cretan War, i.e. the war between Venetian-Cretans and Turks, most battles took place in the countryside, as the Great Castle of Candia resisted for 22 years. In the wider area of Iraklion, Christians were led by the abbot of the monastery Agarathos, Athanasios Christoforos and the scholar Gerasimos Vlachos, while the Venetian general Gildasis (Gil d 'Has) attacked the Turks in several places. During one of these attacks, in 1647, Gil d' Has attacked the Turks who had occupied the fortress Temenos, slaughtering almost all of them. In 1669, after the Turks conquered Candia, the fort was donated by the Sultan to the Venetian traitor of Candia, Andrea Barozzi. The fort was then named Kanli Castelli, i.e. bloody fort, so as to commemorate the massacre of the Turkish army in 1647. However, there were references to the fort, naming it as Nefs Temenos.
