Minoan Peak Sanctuary

Avlemonas

In 1992 archaeologist Ioannis Sakelarakis and his team discovered a Minoan peak sanctuary in front of the church of Agios Giorgis sto Vouno which had not been plundered in the past. Minoans used this sanctuary to watch the Sea of Kythera. Furthermore, thanks to a fire signal system, they were able to transmit messages from Peloponnese to Crete, and this sanctuary served as the main relay. The archaeological digs unearthed utensils made of ceramic and stone, some jars, small statues that were given as offerings, etc.
