The entire area of Gisira is of considerable archaeological interest; today it is partially subject to constraint.

Here there are traces of an ancient village dating back to the Neolithic period.

Probably huts were not inhabited at the same time, and probably were inhabited during the summer, thanks to fishing.

The holes for the wooden poles suggest that the huts did not have a regular shape.

A large rectangular hut of 5x2 meters with north-south orientation consisted of three central load-bearing poles, surrounded by other poles inserted into holes with a diameter of about 10/15 cm.

The supporting structure was probably plastered with clay; the cover had to be made with leathers, held at the base by stone walls, or with interwoven reeds.

Many obsidian finds have also been found on the site.

The village was equipped with water thanks to a source, partially active even today, which is located near the sea, which was accessed through a staircase carved into the rock.

Today you can still see some steps of it.
