Foundations of a monumental medieval building have been found on Ayias Theklis street. The roadworks were conducted to widen the roads surrounding the marina to four lanes. The archaeologists will try to determine whether there are older archaeological structures under the recently revealed ones. According to the officials the uncovered section will probably be backfilled and protected, so instead of covering the findings with asphalt for the road, it will be covered with sand so it can still be used as a road.
