Skip the Line: Knossos Palace and Archaeological Site Entrance Ticket

30 reviews
Nobody wants to waste vacation time waiting outside an attraction, especially in high temperatures. With this priority-access ticket to the Knossos archaeological site, you can breeze past ticket-purchase lines to explore what was the birthplace of Minoan civilization and according to myth, the seat of King Minos. Prebook your skip-the-line ticket, travel independently to the site, and roam the partially restored relics of Minos’ palace and courtyards independently.

Certainly worth a look if you are making your way from the old harbour back into the centre of town.

We visited on Sunday morning just as the service was finishing. We were offered cinnamon-flavoured bread by the congregation to celebrate the day. Very interesting church in quiet neighbourhood.

Once you walk into the plaza in front of the church what strikes you is the minaret still standing next to this Greek Orthodox Church. Once again the remnant of the Ottoman Occupation is part of the fabric of Greek Cretan life.

It is a Venetian-built church (1630) somewhere at the Splantzia Square, but this square is also called 1821 square). The Latin inscription over the entrance reads that it is dedicated to God the Great and Mighty and to the Divine Rocco. The church of San Rocco was built probably after the outbreak of the plague, while Saint Rokkos was the protector of Chania from the contagious disease of cholera. During the Ottoman rule it functioned as a military guardhouse, while during the Cretan State and until 1925 as a police station. So if you happen to be passing by this tiny little church you will know the story behind!
