  • Very nice site, uncommon in this late October, well protected from the North wind. Little originality to the regulars of the archaeological sites. The set is large and Nice.

  • A hidden archaeological site, near by Faistos. The core of the ancient settlement is Minoan, extended by the Mycenaean conquerors.  more »
  • By visiting this site we have a precise idea of the village that was there, shame about the lack of explanations as often in Crete.

  • A little pearl amongst the archeological sites of this area although only few seem to care about. Probably once connected to Faistos palace (second reconstruction), this village had all the potential of a micro city, with a quite impressive agorà, numerous spaces for commercial purposes and a whole section dedicated to the royal apartments. It's believed that Agia Triada was used as momentaneous refuge during the first Faistos destruction; it preserved its status as sacred space all along the Byzantine occupation and was eventually evacuated after the Arabs attack and left inhabited ever since. The small church on the top of the hill which presumably was linked to the bottom sepulchral area (?) has maintained its beautiful singularity. One of the most important Minoan sarcophagi was found in this village.
  • Down the side of a mountain. No information or leaflets given. No boards explaining different parts of the site. Total waste of time.
  • Unfortunately it was closed when we arrived, still it look interesting and I would like to see it.
  • I was surprised how big this site actually was. The little church at the top of the site is fascinating
