Krania View is named after The Krani Stones, the ruined Cyclopean walls of the great Acropolis of ancient Krane (6th century BC), which can be seen from the balcony across the valley of Krania to the south west. The walls are a rare example of the fortress masonry, and were constructed of huge trimmed stones, some of them 2 metres long and a metre high and almost a metre thick shaped and fitted and stacked 4 or 5 high, originally extending for 3.5 km. Well worth a visit, you usually have the place to yourselves, quiet and timeless, 2600 years of secret memories.
At Farsa, on the coastal road north, high above the village, on the hillside, stands the ruined village of old Farsa, originally some 200 homes, abandoned after the earthquake of 1953. It was here, it is said, that Louis De Bernieres found the inspiration to write Captain Corelli's Mandolin.
