Long Description:
These sites are south of Platanos Square and is one of the largest archaeological sites with buildings which date back to the Middle Ages. The site is surrounded by a fortress of the medieval city “Hora”. It consists of an ancient harbour which was protected by another wall. Inside the fortress of the harbour there was a sanctuary and a small unnamed temple. In the excavations a small portion of a building and a tower were found, as were parts of the Ancient Market and a big old Christian basilica called the Limenos Basilica.
This discovery and reconstruction of these ancient findings were brought about by the Italian Archaeological Mission after the earthquake of 1933 which completely destroyed Hora and a large portion of the city.
