Impressive frescoe with blossomed lilies and floral patterns from the "Villa of the Lillies"
The most important monuments of the site are:

"Villa of the Lilies". Minoan villa with paved corridors, "polythyra" (pier-and-door partitions), shrine, kitchen and rooms decorated with wall-paintings depicting blossomed lilies.

Sanctuary of Zeus Thenatas. It is situated on the hill of Palaiochora and has a peribolos surrounding a circular altar of ashes. A wall built of ashlar blocks, dated to the MM II period, is visible today next to the sanctuary of Zeus.

Building C-"Megaron". Minoan building divided into two separate rooms by a partition wall. It was used until the 14th century B.C.

Complex E. Part of a Late Minoan settlement to the west of the hill of Palaiochora. A section has been submerged in the sea and the preserved complex is divided into two large wings; the east includes storerooms and the west is occupied by a shrine and a deposition pit.

Complex F (Mycenaean settlement). It is also part of a settlement, possibly the same as that of "Complex E". It consists of irregular architectural complexes, with rooms employed for the storage of amphoras, a small temple (?) and an open courtyard.

Houses of the Venetian period. The settlement called Mesovouni is located on the hill of Palaiochora and was destroyed in the first years of the Turkish occupation.
