Travel Guide Lasithi Crete Island Greece

LASITHI > HISTORY

History of Lassithi Crete Greek Islands Greece

The area of Lassithi has been inhabited since the Neolithic age, attested by evidence found at Trapezas, the village of Magasa near Sitia and tombs on the Kastellos hill in Tzermiado. From 2700 BC new tribes from Asia or Africa occupied the area; then followed the first phase of the Minoan civilisation that continued up to 1700 BC. Settlements were built in: Myrto Ierapetra, Mohlos, Zakos, Paleokastro, Hamezi and the development of ceramics, metalwork and architecture. After the catastrophe of 1700 BC new settlements were built in Gournia, Psira, Maki Gialo and the creation of naval bases. Later, after the 1450 BC catastrophe, the Dorians came to the island around 1100 BC and created a new culture and built the cities of Ambelos, Dragmos, Drypos, Lato, Minoa, Olous, Presos and Ierapytna.

During the Hellenic years the cities were destroyed by civil wars and were later captured by the Romans in 66 BC and in 395 AD when it became part of the Byzantium Empire. In 824 AD, it was captured by the Moors, but was freed by Nikiforo Foka in 961 AD. During the Venetian rule, from 1204 - 1645, the island was fortified. The Ottomans invaded, captured the island and held it from 1645 - 1897. The residents rebelled against the Turks in a major revolution taking place during the period 1866 - 1869. Union with Greece came about on 1st December 1913.
