Cretan Archaeology: Minoan, Venetian, Ancient





Archaeology is everywhere you step in Crete, and there are many current excavations in every city and town in Crete. Other digs are more hidden in the countryside and only accessable by dirt road. Famous archaeological discoveries such as the palace a Knossos ( Heraklion ), the Gortys Basillica ( Heraklion) and Pharistos ( Chania ) are very touristy, but other sites like Falassarna ( Chania ) are less well known and offer an up-close look to the ancient buildings which still stand where they have for hundreds of years ( and sometimes longer ).
