–Ancient Polirinia–

Polyrrinia is a village and an archaeological site in the Chania regional  7 km from Kissamos.The ruins of the ancient city Polirinia are located on a steep hill overlooking the Cretan and Libyan Sea. The city was probably founded by the Achaeans in 1100BC and flourished during the Roman period.

 

The ports of Polirinia were Falassarna and Kissamos. It developed close trade relations with Sparta, Milos, Rhodes, Thiva, the coasts of Ionia and Egypt. Apart from trade, the town was apparently famous for livestock, as the name comes from the words “polla rinia” which means many lambs.

 

Rolling hills, sleepy villages, olive groves, remains of old civilizations combined with splendid views of the Bay of Kissamos.There are several signs in the village that will point you to places of interest.  In the lower part of the village you can see some remains of a Roman aqueduct.Further up there is a building with huge Venetian arches as well as a really pretty rock chapel (with a lovely shaded yard outside the church) which is well worth a visit.
