KATO SYMI (Village) VIANNO
This isolated site was a place of worship during Minoan, Hellenistic, and Roman times. The Sanctuary of Hermes and Aphrodite may have provided a continuation of the cult of the Young God and the Goddess of Minoan times.
CHONDROS (Village) VIANNO
In Hondros, in the location Kefala, a Late Minoan site has been excavated. Kefala is a double-peaked hill above the village. The Minoan settlement is one of the few examples that have been rebuilt after the destruction of the palaces. It has very thick walls in the houses and low benches.
