Vathípetro at Archanes.
On the left hand side of the road, 4 kilometres south of Archanes, you will find the Minoan Villa of Vathípetro from the 16th century before Christ. The archaeological finds in the once upon a time two stories high villa, are pot makers pallets and 16 pitharia, or the large vase. Furthermore, tools used for the production of textile were found and also a winepress that can still be used today. All these finds together made the villa into an agricultural centre.
