Archaeological site of Stavromenos

The archaeological site of Stavromenos is located at a distance of approximately 11 kilometers far from Rethymnon at the East. Most of the finds, housed in the Archaeological Museum of Rethymnon, have been discovered in the area South to the village Stavromenos, on the hills of Kakavella and Tsikouriana.

Surveys in the area go back to the 18 th century and many finds were brought to light since this period, the most important being the funerary stele of marble, presenting a young hunter in relief; the stele has been dated in the 5 th century b.C. and was discovered in 1918.

Since 1990 the excavation are carried out in a more systematic way and up to now there have been brought to light important complexes of buildings, dwellings and workshops.
