Late Minoan settlement at Kolokasia


Late Minoan settlement Kastri at Kolokasia
(4 votes)

Above the ruined village of Kolokasia in the province of Sfakia, on the southeast side of Asfendou gorge, stands the steep rock Kastri. As evidenced by traces of buildings and part of a fortification wall, Kastri probably was a town built during the Dark Period, just after the collapse of Minoan civilization in the 12th century BC, by the inhabitants of Crete to avoid hostile raids.
