This site is so unique as it is not that of a palace, but of a town with the market and a royal villa. Unfortunately only the foundations remain of the town so it is quite hard to make out where the houses are and...More

Much smaller than Faistos. Some great finds here now on display at Heraklion museum of archeology. Get the key from ticket office for tiny church to see very old frescoes.

For sure a nice place to see, a quite decent archeological site but for a 4eur ticket I would expect to get at least a small piece of information. There's not even one general information board. Highly unacceptable, so much to be done in Crete...

If you like ancient archeological sites, this is very nice place to visit. The ruins are great and view is nice. If you're going to Faistos, it's nice to include Agia Triada to your day.
