Amnisos Minoan Villa

Amnisos Minoan Villa

Just after Heraklion is Amnisos, where in 1932 Spyridon Marinatos unearthed a luxurious Minoan villa, which was dubbed the Lily Mansion after its magnificent fresco, now on display at the Heraklion Archaeological Museum. The same area used to have a later sanctuary dedicated to Zeus Thenatas, while excavations also uncovered the remains of a harbour that is most probably sunken today.
