on the hill of Kastelli in the region of Chania,
there are also artifacts from ancient civilizations both in the North & in the
South. One of the most important ancient cities of Western Crete
is Aptera where parts of
the temple of Dimitra have been saved, imposing walls & huge arched tanks of Roman
Years. Also, the acropolis of Polyrrinia
in Kissamos, as well as the
ancient town Falassarna,
which had in the post-Minoan years a closed & safe post, which connected the sea
with a canal. The Asklipieio of Lissos
in the south, as well as the ancient sites in Irtakina,
and Anopolis in the region
