Vathypetro - Minoan Wine Press

In Keras Vathypetro, near Archanes, excavations have brought to light a Minoan villa, a well-preserved olive-press, a wine press, and a storeroom containing jars. (In fact vineyards are still cultivated in the area). The distinguishing feature of this archaeological site is a tripartite sanctuary that was found within the villa’s precinct.
