Mirtos is an important Early Minoan (Prepalatial) settlement. The settlement in Fournou Korfi was occupied from 2500 B.C. until 2170 B.C., when it was destroyed by fire. Numerous examples of Vasiliki-style pottery were found. The site excavation contributed valuable information about the first Minoan settlements.
The intriguing finds from the area of Mirtos are exhibited in the Museum of Agios Nikolaos and Iraklion.
