    The Minoan Palace of Zakros was destroyed towards the 1450, it was reoccupied by the mycenaeans. Therefore its rediscovery in the 20th century was that of a "Virgin" site of almost 3,500 years! Magic place ...

    So I don't mean to be insensitive ... I went back a couple of times ... but I can't entusiarmarmi for tracks of the past in these conditions ... Maybe well told and shown would be different ... The Council studied before the scenario and then visit www. If it is a corollary to a hike or a day trip to Kato Zakros. Ok then.

    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!!
