Details

The most significant discoveries of this archaeological site include:

The Cemetery of Vaulted Chamber Tombs at the site of ‘Spilies’ dating back to the Mycenaean Era. The largest of these chamber tombs was built in the early Mycenaean Era (approx. 1500 BC).

The Acropolis of Pellana, where remnants of Hellenistic walls and relics of the Frankish period have been uncovered.

Atop the Acroplis on ‘Palaiokastro’ hill, recent excavations have unearthed remnants dating back to the Early Helladic period (approx. 2500 BC); this was perhaps a palatial building.
