Kamilari was in existence before Roman times and therefore has, both inside and outside the village, many interesting archaeological sites that you should visit during your stay:
* Kamilari: Minoan tombs within walking distance of the centre.
* Komos: just before you reach the beautiful beaches, you pass the archaeological site which is thought to have been the port for the Palace of Phaestos.
* Phaestos: the 2nd most important Minoan Palace on Crete (after Knossos in Heraklion).
* Agia Triada: possibly the summer palace of Phaestos. The famous sarcophagi-frescoes were found in this area.
* Gortys: an extensive Roman city holding the first written law in Europe.
All these archaeological sites are at short distance from Kamilari.
