The Roman cisterns in Eleftherna
The Roman cisterns in Eleftherna
Several sites from all the eras are currently been excavated by the University of Crete. Greek carved stone cisterns and Roman aqueducts are in the area, as are Byzantine churches of the early Christian period. To find the cisterns walk from Ancient Eleftherna towards the acropolis. After you pass the large Roman tower at the entrance of the acropolis, look for a path on the left side of the acropolis going directly down. After a few metres of descent you are on a path that goes around the acropolis. Take the path backwards and you will see two sets of very large cisterns cut deep into the rock and supported by hewn rock pillars.
