Skip the Line: Knossos Palace and Archaeological Site Entrance Ticket

31 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.

Friday 28th August and we visited Kornarou Square where this multi sided structure is situated, along with Bembo Fountain. As we approached the Square it was not possible to miss this building because of its red tiled roof with a matching coloured orb at the raised centre part. It is actually known as The sebil of Kornarou Square and was built in 1776. On each of it's sides there is an arched window, under which there is a tap with a stone trough beneath that. Today it house a coffeehouse used by the locals.

We came upon this Pumphouse by chance at the top of 25th Augustou Street. There was no signage to explain what is was but we were told later that it was where Muslims would come to wash before going to pray. Adjacent to the pumphouse is another structure with a headless figure. Most odd, but again no explanation or information boards. Such a lovely structure. It should be promoted by the city.

At the top of 25 Augustou Street is Kornarou Square. Where you’ll discover the Turkish Pump House. An Ottoman preserved building. Worth a view while in this area. Look across the busy road to discover an interesting scupture.

A wonderfully restored Historical landmark of Heraklions past, a remnant of the Ottoman period. There is not really much to see but it’s History is more fascinating. It’s a quaint kiosk built in 1776 by Hadji Ibrahim Aga. It was the public fountain where Muslims used to wash themselves before starting with the prayers. Walk around, check out its build and click some pictures when you are here.

The Turkish Pump House is beautiful Kornarou Square, a wonderfully restored remnant of the Ottoman period. Locals hang out there since it's a logical place to rendezvous. The pump house sits adjacent to the famous fountain named for Venetian noble Pietro Bembo. So, it's a landmark you almost can't miss walking the streets of Heraklion.
