Agios Pavlos Saktourion - Rethymno
 
  GENERAL INFORMATION
 

The village of Saktouria is a part of the municipality of Lambi and is located on an altitude of 540 m above the level of the sea. Currently there are around 300 people living there permanently.
At a distance of 49 km of Rethymnon, right turn at the 47th km on the road Rethymnon-Spili-Melambes.
It is recorded as Sacturia in all the Venetian censi of the 16th and 17th centuries. Hourmoutzis Vizantios calls it Sachtouri.
In 1881 it is recorded as forming part of the municipality of Melambes with 360 inhabitants and in 1900, still in the same municipality until 1940 when it becomes the seat of a commune with the same name.
The village owes its name to the Greek word 'sachtouri' which refers to a sailing boat of 15 to 20 tons with square sails. Therefore the name should be Sachtouria and not Saktouria, as it is known today.
