Un palais qui est de petite dimension. Il faut aimer comme nous ce genre de visite pour apprécier. Le meilleur de la Crête étant Knossos.

Το μινωικό παλάτι της Ζάκρου είναι το ένα από τα τέσσερα που υπάρχουν στην Κρήτη. Θησαυρός - δείγμα του μινωικού πολιτισμού !

The finds from the Palace at Zakros are considered one of the most important discoveries relating to the Minoan Culture. Precisely because the Palace of Zakros was excavated last, have used more sophisticated scientific methods. Apart from this and much more, the monument does not peirachtike the passage of time by Tomb robbers. The Palace at Zakros considered that there was an administrative and religious center with highly important trading port. A commercial station which connected the Minoan Crete with great centers of the era in Africa and Asia.

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!
