This archaeological site is only a few kilometres from the more famous site of Phaistos, it's an early Bronze Age settlement with two Minoan tombs from the same era, which is why it's thought by some archaeologists to have been the summer palace for the rulers of Phaistos. Wall art and some clay tablets and stone vases are some of the beautiful treasures that have been uncovered here.

Another thing to note when visiting the site is the drainage system developed by the architects.

This site is quieter than Phaistos.
