On the road to Pollonia you will find on your left the findings of the ancient city of Fylakopi, which is one of the most important settlements of Cycladic culture and the most important city of the prehistoric Aegean.
Remains of 2 millennia are preserved in it. There are traces of habitation from the beginning of the Early Bronze Age (around 3000 BC) until the end of the Late Age (1100 BC). Built in the northern part of the island, Fylakopi became a major commercial and cultural center. Thanks to the obsidian gemstone trade, it grew rapidly, gained strength, erected cyclopean walls for the invaders, and was destroyed and resurrected three times.
Today most of the city is below sea level, but it is worth visiting to admire that it is saved by the imposing cyclopean wall of the settlement, the Sanctuary, as well as the Palace of the settlement. With your visit to the Archaeological Museum you can find wonderful samples of ceramic art from the city of Fylakopi, such as clay pots, stone, clay and bronze figurines, a Linear AI plate, various useful objects and the famous “Lady of Fylakopi”.
