Archanes is the seat town of the Municipality of Archanes, located 15km south of Heraclio and is characterized by great agricultural, cultural and touristic development. The most evolved village in Greece, in level of life and public services. Historically speaking, Arhanes is one of the most important Minoan centres of Crete. The discovery of ancient roads leading from Archanes to Jukatas, Anemospilia, Xeri, Kara and Vathypetro indicate that Archanes was an important hub in the region during Minoan times. (...)

The village has been restored and beautified with European Union funds, as well as private initiative. It has won awards - 2nd best restored village in Europe and 1st in long term development prospects. Streets have been newly stone-paved, there are more splendid displays of blooming flowers, fruit trees and plants in the yards, terraces and balconies of the houses - a walk around the back streets is a pleasure as a result. Despite restorations, the village retains the atmosphere and the architectural features, and it is a model restoration projects. The village features many museum, art and cultural events.
