Its a way off the road over some rough ground, and you are met by a locked gate, but the key is hanging there. It is in superb unspoilt condition, no graffiti or signs of dossing like we get in caves and burial chambers in...More

Not well marked (only one small sign) and no information or services (or bathroom) from the guy behind the counter. Still, the sign gave a decent background of this fascinating site. We did not realize you are allowed to enter the tombs and so we...More

If you want to experience unadulterated history find your way to this gem isoloated in an olive grove only 300m from the road but rarely seen. Don't tell anyone else.

This is a highly educational venue. The tombs were dug by the late Minoan civilisation approx 1400 BCE. It's incredible that crypts and passages were excavated into solid rock by people using hand tools before the iron age began. Modern archaeologists have unearthed about 200...More

Open Tuesday to Sunday 10am - 6pm. Entrance €2 (August 2017). Nice site in a good condition, surrounded by oak trees. Not many information (only a panel at the entrance). Interesting place to visit near Rethimno and on the way to South Crete.

Beautiful Minoan nekropolis. To see the whole site you just follow the path after the entrance. It is a relatively short walk and very easy to do. We visited on a hot day and we were happy that we brought a bottle of water, as...More

I found it mindblowing to find that such a well preserved Minoan tomb just lies there in an Olive tree field free to visit. Just think that the Minoan civilisation's time line overlaps with the Egyptian pyramids! It is one of those charms that Greece...More

This late-Minoan burial ground is located in small and peaceful copse of wild oaks on a slight slope (good for drainage and preservation). The tombs show the linear development of ritual burials in underground tombs from the (?Dorian) age to the later Mycenaean ( about...More

The guide books suggest this is a free entry site, but there is an entrance fee of €2, which we thought very reasonable. An extensive burial ground from more than 3000 years ago. Take a torch, if possible, to look into many of the excavated...More
