Minoan Settlement of Kastelli
(2 votes)

At Kastelli Pediada we meet traces of a settlement that flourished in the Minoan Era and was built since the Neolithic Period. The settlement had developed around a central two-story building of large dimensions, the architectural remains of which are visible today in the square of Saint George. The town was destroyed around 220 BC, perhaps after the raid of Knossos. At the same position, there are remains from the fortress of Kastelli and an old cistern.
