  • It is true that this relatively unknown area has not become very highly. However, according to the scientific data, there was a highly developed and rich port with unique facilities in Greece, and not only, space. The last destruction of the city by the ad 365 earthquake lifted the port of 6.5 meters and devastated the once-thriving city. Today, those that can be seen by the visitor is not too much but can get a good taste of the ancient city. I think it's worth it to "discover" and to enhance the presence of your yperanthrwpi and multi-year effort of excavation. Archaeologists and local factors, for decades, finance their own excavations without any State support and aid. Another valuable piece of Cretan but also of Greek history that asks for our love and attention!

  • Being in Falassarna lies within 150 feet cannot see its ancient part, which slowly, as in Greece, is revealed. Excavation can be visited from Tuesday to Friday from 9-15.

  • Here are remains of walls and ruins of ancient Falasarna. Here there was previously including a port, which with increased on the basis of ground, together with the corresponding location to several meters. There are only the remains of the walls and ruins to see, but it is interesting with the history. Admission is free, but you are requested to make a donation. According to the Info Panel, the terrain every day from 09:00 to 15:00 visit should be open. When we were there, it was opened at 10:25. The location and the views are beautiful. One must drive 2 KM unpaved gravel road to the grounds, there are some a few unpaved parking spaces outside the.

  • the area where the ancient glorious city of falassarna was located. there's 1,5 or 2km narrow (bout 3 meters wide) path from the falassarna beach that drives you there .as bout monuments hmm... there 're not really much to see anymore... but the scenery of the location is unique and it will definitely compensate you for that
  • Was closed on the day we visited. Looked interesting though.
  • If you like a glimpse into ancient history, don't miss out on this if you're in this part of the island.
  • Excavations are still in progress and you can just wander through and see that a lot is still waiting to be uncovered.
  • If you love ancient history do not miss this place and its stories. It is not easy to find it but it's reall worth an effort. You can get the feeling on how looked old settlements.
