  • Do as the result of phaistos to add to your discovery of Greek history. Beautiful setting

  • The site is great and in a very nice setting. Because of its low attendance, we were alone on the site during all our visit, a real pleasure! However, it is necessary to take a tourist book or the internet for information, as on-site there is none.

  • Adjacent to Festus but much less visited. Very interesting site, to get around in peace and quiet. Again it's evident the coexistence of economic, administrative and religious activities.

  • 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
  • Wonderfull.
