Lying next to the airport, this is considered to be a very important site. There are houses from the proto-Helladic period (3000 BC), in addition to remains and fortifications from the Copper Age (before 2500 BC).

Excavations have revealed artifacts from up to 1650 BC. The settlement used to be much bigger but over the centuries the part near the coast was eroded. There are remains of a strong wall and U-shaped ramparts, as well as foundations of homes and other structures. Evidence of a clear city plan can be seen, along with ovens, hearths and other objects. Much of the riches found here are at the Archaeological Museum of Palamari, including metal objects, tools and vessels. The town’s fortifications boasted designs seen mostly in Syria and Palestine, appearing in the Aegean around 2300 BC. Last but not least, worth mentioning as well is that Palamari had a strong port that traded with the Cyclades and other parts of Greece.
