The bridge is made of stone and it consists of three big bows that were made from hewn rectangular stones that extrude in corners.
Ierapetra’s Ottoman school was built in the 19th century’s 2nd half. Its characteristic is the three entrance configuration that have been placed, the one in the middle and the other two in the tips of the first rectangular ground plan.
