Geocache Description:

Aghia Triada lies 3 km west of Phaestos. The site was a Minoan royal villa with a small settlement near it. It also includes an ancient drainage system and early Minoan tombs.

After the catastrophe of 1450 BC, the town was rebuilt and remained inhabited until the 2nd century BC. Later, a Roman period villa was built at the site. Nearby there are two chapels,Agia Triada and Agios Georgios,(14th century) built during the Venetian period, as well as the deserted village of Agia Triada, destroyed by the Turks in 1897.
Agia Triada was originally excavated by Sir Arthur Evans from 1900 to 1908. A group of Italian archaeologists who worked with him -- Halbherr, Pernier, Savignoni and Paribeni - unearthed a sarcophagus painted with illuminating scenes from Cretan life, now at the Archaeological Museum in Heraklion.
