Having returned from the guided tour of the cape of Gramvousa, you will descend towards the south and west coastline towards the destination of the notorious Falasarna. In order to reach Falasarna you must get to Platano and from there turn north towards Kavousi by following the signs. Travelling towards Falasarna you will have a majestic view of the ruins of the ancient city, the dense vegetation and the blue sea.
Ancient Falasarna was the seaport of Polyrinia in ancient times which provided the powerful city great security due to the impregnable fortress it provided. As a city with a naval station it played an important role in trade and shipping, which brought anologous wealth and managed to surpass Polyrinia in development. It also had its own currency whose one side depicted the head of a woman and the other the letters Φ Α in between a trident.
The city seems to have already been founded in historic times even though its name is Pre-Hellenic. At the archaeological site of the city you can see today remains of its walls which must have certainly been very strong, judging by their size.
A stone throne which possibly was dedicated to Poseidon or Diktyna also survives as well as the remains of the acropolis on the rise of the hill. At the site carved tombstones were discovered as well as relics of the temple of Apollo and Diktyna.
