Kalimera  Archanes Hotel

In the center of Archanes village, at the point called Tourkogeitonia , excavations revealed a group of buildings , probably a summer palace , which dates back to 1900b.C. Within a close distance from Archanes, in Vathypetro , has also been excavated a Minoan villa that was once used as a handicraft producing oil , wine and pottery. A prehistoric cemetery, which had been used for more than 1000 years, was discovered at the northwest of Archanes , on Fourni hill. Its long use allows the recognition of many types of tombs. At Psyli Korfi , the top of the ravine that separates Fourni hill from Mount Giouhtas, lies one of Crete's most important sanctums, which was used for a long period of time as a worship place. On the southwestern side of Mount Giouhtas visitors will find two more sights known as "Hosto nero" and "Spilios tou Stravomyti".
On the northern side of the mountain, at the point called "Anemospilia", were discovered remnants of a Minoan temple, unique for the variety and wealth of its findings.
