Gournia, 2007. Gournia, with its cobbled and stepped streets, occupied both sides of a low hill near the Bay of Mirabello. It is the most intact and fully excavated Bronze Age town in Crete. The American archaeologist Harriet Boyd excavated the site in 1901-04. The palace of the local ruler, right of center, was an integral part of the town. The view looks southeast.
