87. Pelekita Ancient Quarry
Approximately half way along the path leading from Kato Zakros to Karoumes beach (geotrail 12) and near Pelekita cave, is the ancient quarry by the same name. We find it amidst compacted Pleistocene aeolianite sandstone, which were easily excavated as they are soft rocks due to their many pores. On the rocks in the area there are several traces of the excavation activity that took place in the past.
