  • Very interesting archeological site that gives you the idea of what could be life at that time. Fanciful reconstructions were made not as tall Cretan sites. It's not very big and you visit soon. A pleasant destination for those who spend their holidays in this beautiful location.

  • We had a great guide who gave us the keys to understanding this Minoan site. Without explanation, the visit has no sense.

  • A great site with no fancy reconstructions, in a beautiful area where before or after your visit you can freshen yourself up with a nice swim in the sea and a lunch in good trattorias nearby. You are able to identify the various environments of this real city where the view is probably the same from 4000 years.

  • 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!!
  • Is worth a look. But, you should pay attention to the Sun!
