The name of the hotel comes from the area AMNISSO . It was  an ancient town who related with the Minoan period and the palace of Knossos.
Visitors can find the town  7km out of the city Heraklion, near to the place of  Karteros.
This town was an important center of Minoan  civilization.
There is the cave of goddess of maternity Ilithias. She was daughter of goddess Ira. This cave was a place of worship.
Inside  is the place of shrines in which priests were living.
After years  excavations found out the ruins of a Minoan Cottage, inside were  fabulous murals(wall painting) and now you can find them in the museum of Heraklion.
In our days  except from historical side for visitors is a good opportunity to swim in a huge sandy  beach.
