Anavlochos settlement

Anavlochos is rocky and steep hill east of the gorge of Selinari. At this inhospitable place traces of a post-Minoan settlement (9-6th century BC) with tanks, walls, tombs and sanctuary have been identified.

This settlement belongs to the dozens of settlements of the Dark period of Crete, after the destruction of the Minoan civilization, when settlements were founded on the most inhospitable and inaccessible peaks of the Cretan mountains.
