History of Apokoronas
The Province of Apokoronas, known simply as Apokoronas, was a province in the east of the Prefecture of Chania in Crete until 1997, when the institution of provinces in Greece was abolished with the Kapodistrias plan. It was the smallest in area of the five provinces of the Prefecture covering 343 sq.km., mainly mountainous land and for the most part arable with pastures and forests.
The borders of the province to the west are defined by the hills of Malaxa and Kerameia, to the south by the mountain range of the White Mountains, to the east by the river Muselas and to the north by the Cretan Sea (to be precise, the Gulf of Almyros and the Gulf of Souda). Administratively, west of Apokoronas in the province of Kydonia, south the province of Sfakion and east the Prefecture of Rethymno.
The province is first mentioned in Strabo, where it is referred to as “Hippokoronion”.  The population of the province actively participated in all the mobilizations and revolutions of the Christians during the 19th century, while from it began the Cretan Revolution 1895-1898, the first phase of which is known as the Post-Revolutionary Revolution.

The historical seat of the province is Vamos, a village that is mentioned several times in registers and inventories of the Venetian occupation (1212-1646), but it is estimated that it was founded during the period of Arab occupation (8th-10th century). Apart from being the seat of the province, Vamos also became the seat of the Prefecture of Sfakion in 1867, a status it maintained until the abolition of the Prefecture in 1915.
From 1920 until World War II, the population of this province showed a continuous increase and then followed the decrease. In 1971 it had 13,330 inhabitants and in 1981 it decreased to 11,972. At the time of the union of Crete with Greece (1913) the province of Apokoronas included 31 municipalities. After the abolition of the Prefecture of Sfakion, the province became part of the Prefecture of Chania and its municipalities were transformed into communities. Until recently, the province of Apokoronas included, in addition to the municipalities, 34 communities and 70 settlements.
