Archaeological Collection of Ierapetra
(6 votes)

The archaeological collection of Ierapetra began to be formed in the late 19th century, when its antiquities-loving residents founded the Educational Association of Ierapetra, whose purpose was to gather and preserve the region’s antiquities, as well as to create a museum collection.

The Museum housed today in the landmark building of the Ottoman School or Mehtepi, was built in 1899 and hosts the objects that survived from damage and looting (dating back from the 3rd millennium BC to the 5th c. AD.)
