  Sklavokambos is 22km from Iraklion on the Iraklion - Tilisos - Sklavokambos road. The fenced in Minoan site there, comes up to the road. There is a sign to the site on the main road. Sklavokambos is the site of a Minoan villa dating from the late New Palace Period. It is simpler in style than the villas at nearby Tilisos and consists of three different sets of apartments within three levels. The villa has a north-south orientation with an entrance to the east and a veranda on the north side looking towards the valley. The villa had also a small temple, store rooms full of jars and a toilet. It was destroyed by an intense fire. The villa was a part of a larger settlement in the area. Many jars and seals were found in the villa.
