  • Simply magnificent! One can spend hours admiring the remains if the palace, and is much less crowded as Knossos, but much comparable. Although, the restoration works were not as complete as in Knossos, but we found this place simply better and more close to us, than the most hyped one. It does worth a visit!
  • If you like history this is a must see on Crete, an enormous complex where you can actually walk between the walls of this historical palace. One friendly advice, there is not much shade so try to plan your visit when it is not so hot. We were here around 26 degrees and some wind so perfect day 😀
