Agia Pelagia is a cosy small village on the north coast of Crete, breathing the atmosphere of authentic Greece, even though it is only 22 km from the capital Heraklion.
The region is full of natural beauty and due to its geographic position it played an important role throughout history. Where Agia Pelagia is now, there used to be an ancient Greek city, it has been inhabited since around 2000 BC as most findings date back to 1700 BC and 1300 BC when the inhabitants had dealings with Faistos, Knossos and the Cyclades. The ancient town was destroyed by fire in 1200 BC. Sir Arthur Evans mentioned that they were the best salvaged remains of a Minoan harbour. Many of the ceramics collected there, are now found in the museum of Ashmolen in Oxford. The most notable remains found in the wide area: large water containers (for the supply ships), the Roman Aquaduct, engraved tombes etc.
