At Grigori Peak, situated in the broader region of Kamilari, one can find the remnants of a large domed tomb with a 34-meter long perimeter that offers breathtaking sea views. The tomb was first uncovered in 1959 by Italian archaeologist Doro Levi and dates back to 2000 BC.
This semi-subterranean tomb was constructed using vaulted (tholos) architecture, comprised of stone and mud. It featured five rooms and a yard outside the tomb, while the roof was made of wood. The most significant artifact from the tomb is displayed in the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion and portrays four dancers in a circle, known as the “Dancers from Kamilari.”
