The Gournia site is extensive and the excavations have revealed a thriving Minoan trading town of winding alleys lined by tiny houses, workshops, a market place and, on the top of the hill, a palace, believed to have belonged to the local ruler or governor.

Address: Lasithi Prefecture
Directions: The ruins sprawl over a hillside just off the main Agios Nikolaos to Sieia coastal road.
