Archaeological site of Polirinia

The archaeological site is located 48 kilometers far from Chania at the Southwest.
Polyrheneia was one of the most ancient cities of Crete, since it had been founded by the Myceneans, when they succeeded the Minoans by the mid -2 nd millennium b.C. The city flourished during the Roman period as it had been awarded various privileges as a reward for not having resisted to the Romans.

What is visible today are the city walls, a few graves and traces of an aqueduct of the Roman period.

If you wish to visit the site you arrive at the homonymous village and then you walk following the path.
