  • This is a lovely site - not too large - of the ruins of a Minoan Palace. The site is very interesting and you can almost imagine it being inhabited. It is also in a lovely quiet position behind the be...  more »
  • Like Gournia, this site is is partly built on a hillside allowing one to view the plan of the palace complex, which lies below the town. The survival is very good, but as so often, signage is very poo...  more »
  • A palace that need not take you more than an hour to walk round - unless you get enthralled and want to soak in the atmosphere. Plenty of web sites to tell you about it first, but you do get a leaflet...  more »
  • The site itself is very worth the visit. I wonder though why I had to pay 6 euro per person for a site that was on many places completely overgrown so that you could hardly see the structures or steps. Shame on the Archaeology Department for not having cleaned up the excavations by the end of April! It shows disrespect for the past and the tourists....
  • Very big archeological site. Every bit as impressive as Knossos. Still has some clay walls standing. Best seen in combination with a local museum that has the artifacts that were found here (can't remember which that would be sorry).
  • A vast and incredible site!!! There are even little turtles that live in the ancient wells and are said to be descended from the original turtles who were here when the palace/temple was built around 1900 BCE. You can easily spend a few hours exploring this place. When you are spent, wander down to the beach and get some great local food!!
  • 6€ for bunch of rocks and long journey.
  • Worth a visit!
