I didn't find this place any extra ordinary .It was quiet far from main town and very dangerous walk to rocky water tanks.

This is well worth a small detour, possibly on your way to see the Milonas Waterfall which is nearby. But is it a Minoan Water Tank? No, it's a Roman fish trap. Plenty of pictures and a nature guide at: http://cretenature.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/in-search-of-roman-repast.html
