The area of Zominthos is after Anogia and higher in the mountains on the road to the Nida Plateau of Psiloritis. Here archaeologists have found what they believe to be the remains of a very large Minoan settlement that is, as yet, mostly unexcavated. The excavations to date have revealed a large entrance facing east towards Knossos, and a laboratory for producing pottery which had a wheel and other tools as well as many vases. The site is fenced off. This small plateau near Nida has a wonderful view of Psiloritis.
