Ancient Cemetery

According to recent excavations (1983) a great cemetery was brought to light which is dated from the end of the 8th century until the 3rd P.C. century. The cemetery was found near the Port, almost on the coastal road. It includes graves of several types and of several periods. The most important finding is a polyandrous (a common grave) unique in the Aegean Sea and is dated from the end of the Geometrical period (8th century B.C.). In front of the polyandrous there is a huge tombstone. Today the area is an archaeological park. In the show room that stands next to the cemetery, the visitor can admire both the interesting findings and photographs of older and recent excavations.
