It is one of the most important early settlements with organized urban plan that have been identified in the Greek territory. It was inhabited for approximately 100 years, from 650 to 550 BC, and it was of military nature, since it was the last port of the eastern Aegean.
The site was excavated in 1907-08 by Karl Frederik Kinch, a member of the Danish archaeological mission, which had carried out significant excavation activity on the island. The mosaic floors you will see on the sand belong to a 6th-century early Christian church.
The archaeological site is located at the northernmost point of Rhodes, opposite Prasonisi. A few meters before you reach the beach of Prasonisi, there is a dirt road on the right that leads to Vroulia.
