Welcome to Palekastro


About 1km east of town, about 150m south of Hiona Beach, is the archaeological site of Roussolakkos, where archaeologists are digging up a Minoan town and hoping for evidence of a major Minoan palace. This is where the Palekastro Kouros ivory figurine – now residing in the Archaeological Museum in Sitia – was found.
