Minoan villa in Vathipetro

It is worth knowing that the wine press found here is 3,500 years old and is considered one of the oldest in Crete. It is known from Homer's writings that at that time Cretan wines were known and valued in the contemporary world. The importance of the liquor at the time was testified not only by the wine presses found. Such certificate also exhibits impressive amphorae, huge wine magazines and drawings found in all Minoan palaces. This is proof not only of the sophisticated taste and lifestyle of the Minoans, but above all the fact that the wine played a very important role in the life of the island.

Excavations at Chamaizi

Excavations at Chamaizi

11 km from the city of Sitia, near the modern village of Chamaizi, there is a small archaeological site. At the top of a cone-shaped hill called Souvloto Mouri, the remains of an unusual building with a unique oval shape were discovered. Despite its small size, it is one of the most important discoveries that comes from the Central Minoan period. So far, it is the only oval building from Crete in this period.

Minojska Agia Triada (Αγία Τριάδα)
and the Byzantine church of Agios Georgios (Άγιος Γεώργιος)

Agia Triada is a small Minoan archaeological site in the south of Crete, located near Timpaki, located on the western slope of the hill about 40 meters above sea level. To inquisitive tourists, the Christian name (Holy Trinity) of the Minoan position may seem at least strange, but this is only an expression of the ignorance of Italian archaeologists who were the first to discover this place. Not knowing what they found, they borrowed the name from a nearby abandoned village and gave it to excavations. The original name is still unknown. The first excavations were carried out at the beginning of the 19th century.

Gournia - an unnamed settlement

Gournia - an unnamed settlement

It is recognized that Gournia was inhabited between 3000 BC and 1200 BC and is one of the few cities unearthed to a large extent. In other major cities, archaeologists focused mainly on discovering palace buildings, while in Gournia, apart from the palace, urban buildings, residential houses and a road network were also discovered.

Nawet jazda samochodem pod prąd okazała się nie taka straszna. Jedyny minus to to, że ciemno robi się o 17. My próbujemy przestawić czas samodzielnie - chodzimy spać o 22 a wstajemy o 6
