Minoan tholos tomb in Stylos
On the road from Megala Horafia to Stylos, after you pass the turning to Malaxa, you will see, 200 metres ahead on your left, two wire gates side by side. There is an intact, round Minoan tholos tomb inside the right gate. The tomb is to the right of the entrance, in the middle of an olive grove. It dates from the Late Minoan Period and has been built on a hill. A downward-sloping path built with stones leads to the entrance of the tomb, which is underground. This is a vaulted tomb that has been built with stones placed one above the other so that successive layers are progressively nearer the centre of the tomb until they eventually meet.
