Near Palekastro,on the northeast coast of the island, are the ruins of a settlement that flourished during the Late Minoan period (1550-1220 BC). Also at the site there are some cemeteries excavated that date to the Early and Middle Minoan periods (3000—1550 BC). The ruins consist of streets of the settlement, houses and even a sophisticated drainage system. The village once covered an area of more than 50,000 m┬▓. The well-known Paleokastro Koura, a gold and ivory statue, was found here and is currently on display at the Sitia Museum.
