Other Site Characteristics

The southern part of the site is a rocky mountain with very steep slopes. The main rock is limestone of the Tripoli series. It is surrounded by extensive cultivation with vineyards and olivetrees. It is a very important archaeological site. Human activities have not stopped there since the early Neolithic times. The dominant vegetation is maquis and phrygana, but artificial pine and cypress groves. There are a T.V. transmitor and a church on the two highest peaks. The north-east and the north parts of the site comprise an intermittently flowing river with rich riparian vegetation. There is a small canyon at the north-east edge of the mountain. The rocks are neogene marbles.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site is characterized by high biodiversity and by the presence of many Cretan and Greek endemic species of flora and fauna. It is an ecological island surrounded by extensive cultivation, mainly vineyards and olive groves. Giouchtas mountain is one of EU's Important Bird Areas due to the presence of an important vulture colony. It is protected as an "important archaeological site" and as a "site of special natural beauty”. However, legislation and protection are not effective.
