  • A unique place, situated almost in the South of Crete-pretty long but informative way. This Minoan Palace, where reconstruction was not carried out, as in the Palace of Knossos, so less visitors.

  • Great lookout over the Cretan agriculture. On the plateau then even the spacious Palace, where the highly controversial in its authenticity discos was found by Feistos. The Fund is a fact. If the clay plate embossed with razor-sharp incised Minoan sign is genuine? No matter! The place is wonderful and breathes out history. A must for hobby archaeologists and interested amateurs like me. Who wants to know more, find great Arte documentation on YouTube to the discos of Feistos and the battle of competing archaeologists from Feistos and Knossos. Watch the best the docs to prepare: then looking at all this with still interessierteren eyes.
