Since this period of time the excavations carried out and continuing up to now have brought to light a quite extended cemetery of the Late Minoan period. Up to now there have been found more than 220 tombs, most of them chamber tombs dug in the soft rock; their orientation is East-West and they have a narrow corridor leading to the main chamber.
The most important thing is that the tombs were found intact and given rich finds, as weapons, statuettes, ceramic vases, jewels and tools. Archaeologists suggest that these are family tombs with more than one burial. Some of the bodies were buried in urns decorated with motives taken from natural life and the ritual. All these finds are displayed in the Archaeological Museum of Rethymnon. The site is open to visitors.
