​Vathypetro 4km south of the village of Archanes at an altitude of 555 meters, Greek archaeologists have brought to light a Minoan rural villa of the 16th century b.C. Similar to the Minoan palaces although much smaller, it was probably the residence of a local ruler. Among the most important finds are an olive-press, some big clay jars and a unique wine-press still “in situ” at the south wing of the villa.
