In the east of Crete near Ierapetra you will find an ancient settlement from the Minoan era. The clearly visible foundation walls made of stacked stones give a nice impression of the way of life of the people around 2,300 years ago.
The archaeological excavations at Vassiliki revealed ceramic vessels that were coloured in a special way during firing by different flame intensities. This traditional art form entered common usage as the 'Vassiliki style'.
