Minoan Palace of Zakros Reviews
Από τα σημαντικότερα ανάκτορα της μινωϊκής Κρήτης. Οι ανασκαφές συνεχίζονται και φέρνουν όλο και μεγαλύτερη έκταση του αρχαιολογικού χώρου στο φως. Σημαντικό ότι, όπως φαίνεται, έμεινε ανέπαφο από του... more »One of the most important palaces of Minoan Crete. The excavations continue and bring more and more area of the archaeological site. Important that, as it seems, stayed intact by the Tomb robbers. Special place, great historical value, so worth a visit.
We were in Kato Zakros last year but did not have the time to visit this place, we made sure we did this year though. An amazing place and a lot bigger than we thought and could see each day from our ... more »
Schöner Überblick über antike Paläste, kinderfreundlich, gut erklärt und dokumentiert. Preiswert, Kinder Eintritt frei. more »Nice overview of ancient palaces, says child-friendly, good and documented. Inexpensive, children free admission.
The give a little info bouquet with detailed map of every room. There were nobody at 8am in July and sun was not that hot.
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.
