Rectangular building with three narrow chambers, each opening into
a long corridor to the north, which extends along the whole width of the building.
The area is enclosed with a stone wall and the whole structure has
been interpreted as a shrine; in the central room was found a "xoanon" (statue)
of the deity worshiped here. In the west room, where the altar stood, was uncovered,
according to the excavator, the first human sacrifice to have ever taken place
in Minoan times.
The building at Anemospelia was used for only half a century, as it was
suddenly destroyed by an earthquake in the middle of the 17th century BC.
The site was excavated in the summer of 1979 by John Sakellarakis.
