Details / Information  Overview:

Ancient Eleftherna is located in a distance approx. 30 km. to the South East of Rethymnon and occupies two long, narrow ridges, called Pyrgi and Nissi.

Three streams flow around the foot of the hills and join to the north of them. The urban centre of ancient Eleytherna was always located at Pyrgi. Ruins of Hellenistic walls and buildings, Roman structures and an Early Christian basilica are preserved on the east slope of the hill. On the west slope of the hill, at the site called Orthi Petra (standing stone), lies the cemetery of the Late Geometric and Archaic periods, part of which was covered by the Roman buildings.

Remains of a settlement that flourished in the Hellenistic period have been uncovered on the Nissi hill.
