This is a Minoan palace, but not one of those big ones like Knossos and Festos. There are very special things to discover but documentation and service are low.

The villa at Agia Triada adds some additional insight on the ancient civilisation. However, there is no WC, taverna, any explanation. You have to continue on the road from the palace to get here. The other way to get in might be flooded and really...More

An interesting place to visit but 2 things were missing. (1) any interpretation of what we were visiting (2) a sanitary toilet. The toilet was disgusting, unusable. From a cultural visit point of view I am glad I came here. I am grateful to Rough...More

This is a nice quiet site with great views of the surrounding countryside with compact ruins. If you can get into it the little church has interesting frescoes of St George.

Very peaceful place with minimal visitors making a pleasant change from other Cretan tourist sites We had a very informative Blue Guide of Crete with us, bringing the place alive with its description of each area, most helpful

I wouldn't know how it is, because we only made to the entrance. We have just gotten out of 8+8€ from Faistos. We saw another archaeological sign, just 3km away, and we said why not? Well, because they wanted 4+4€ more! As a Greek, that...More

This is a small site containing the ruins of a Minoan settlement. Definitely things of interest to see here, pots, tiled floors, water channels (and the little church on the hill is very nice) but as there are very few information boards I would suggest...More

Agia Triada is not as grand as some of the other Minoan sites, but it is beautiful and calm and a welcome break from the sites deluged in bus loads of tourists. We were the only people there at 9:30 in the morning and it...More

I visited Agia Triada with my 17 year-old daughter today, and we spent about 2.5 hours exploring the site. Luckily, we had bought the guidebook at Phaistos which also covers this site, otherwise we would have not have had a clue, as there are no...More
