Kanli Kastelli from Vathipetro
One km west of Vathipetro is a Minoan Villa, a large hall. It is located on a hill with a view of the valley all the way to Kanli Kastelli. The villa was destroyed at the same time as the palaces. A Tripartite Shrine recalling the shrines of the Knossos and Zakros frescoes was identified. The site is open to the public and some of the rooms display interesting artefacts. The collection includes a wine press that differs only slightly from those in present-day use.
