Ancient Falasarna

The ancient Falasarna is located on the west coast of the peninsula’s base Gramvousa and was one of the most important cities of Crete in the Hellenistic Age. The city was famous for its port, the only natural harbor in western Crete built on a lagoon connected with the sea by a narrow channel. Falasarna identified parts of buildings and within walking distance of the port has detected a citadel with strong traces of the walls.
