Ancient Falassarna

Known mostly to travellers as one of the most exquisite beaches on the island, Falassarna like almost every destination in Crete, has an ancient past steeped in historical significance. Once a city itself with a grand trading port one will find evidence of this at its archaeological site which includes remains of the port itself, a cemetery with small, rectangular cist graves, ruins of the city and its walls, as well as an enormous stone throne thought to have been built as a platform for speeches or possibly as an offering to Poseidon, God of the Sea.
