  • Near Festos in the South-central part of Crete are the ruins of the Minoan Villa or Palace of Agia Triada. The size is much smaller than the nearby Festos, but full of charm and well worth a visit.

Here found a stone sarcophagus, the only one found so far on the island of Crete. Tourists are few, only 4 euro, children up to 18 years do not pay. On the side, next to the tiny, historic cerkiewki with the remains of frescoes (14th century) are benches where you can sit and soak up the atmosphere of the ancient walls. But there is no information about the excavations throughout the ruins and their destiny.
