West of the town of Arkalohori rises for rock of Prophet Elijah (Profitis Ilias) with the homonym chapel at the top and the Minoan sacred cave of Arkalochori. On the hillside facing Arkalochori an extended settlement that was inhabited from the Minoan to the Ottoman era has been detected.
The striking feature of the ancient city is the building bases are entirely carved into the rock. The same happens with the bases of the pillars, the bases for places pots, the stairs, etc. Also the city had a very well-organized drainage system for the removal of rainwater.
