Archanes forms an important part of what was once ancient Crete. This city is a nostalgic look into the past and an interesting area to visit or even to live in while on the Island. There is a lot to see do and explore while here.

The ancient village was built on the slope of a hill and its vestiges still remain. Although a lot of it was destroyed by years of wear and tear and changes in the rule it is now being restored and is an incredible sight to see. The old worldly charm of the place is now back and you can admire the lovely architecture and enjoy the palm trees on the port all at once.
