Siti romani

The most important Greco-Roman remains on the island, and one of the most important remains of all Greek antiquity is undoubtedly the Law Code of Gortyn. Gortyn became the capital of Crete during the Roman era (after 65 B.C.) and extensive Roman remains exist in the area. The site of ancient Aptera in Kydonia, located near Chania was also a very significant Roman site with fragment remains of huge Roman cistern complexes, as well as a theatre and other extensive Roman ruins. The site of Eleftherna was occupied from Minoan times and also became an important Roman city. The ancient city of Lissos located near Sougia,  was used in Roman times as well, and an extensive Roman cemetery has been discovered. In Vrises, Apokoronas there is a Greco-Roman bridge. There are Roman remains in Polirinia in western Crete and in Limin Hersonisou there are harbour remains and a mosaic fountain from the Roman era.
