Crete has a fair share of Minoan palaces. This one is large, if you want to avoid crowds at Knossos, then go! Knossos had some more reconstructions, but was basically very similar. Ticket was 6€, parking free.

Not much to see here bar a few ruined stone walls. No mosaics or anything really of interest.
If you’re in the area then worth a look, but don’t make the drive for a special visit.
However, I’m sure the cash is much needed to preserve the site.

The archeological site takes you back and you learn a bit of the the culture then. It is an active site with some restoration of the artifacts. The size of the site makes it ideal when there are no crowds as photo opportunities rapidly disappear. One can only marvel at the artisan skills used to build the palace and make the pottery.

Very well worth visiting. A lot less crowded than Knossos and you can go for a dip in the nearby beach afterwards. Before you go around the site you need to read the leaflet you are given with the ticket and the information available in the two rooms. The leaflet has a diagram of the site with numbers which are identifiable with the numbered signs on site

Nice place for a short escape, we just thought that it would be bigger. If you are close to Malia, go and have a look.
