Palace Of Knosos, Crete Reviews

  • I’m partial to this place because I know and love ❤️ the Minoan history. I was slightly disappointed that it had been restored so much by Evans, however, after having taken a tour with a Greek guide, she persuaded me otherwise. It may be a product of his imagination, but it does help you envision what it possibly looked like and at least portrays the grandeur. Evans also donated the property, for free, to Greece after paying $250,000 for the land back in the 1800’s. That alone shows his passion for the place, which I respect. I would definitely recommend taking a guide (it’s about 10 euros per person) since it is so sprawling with a lot of information to cover. Bask in it and soak it in... you are walking in the footsteps of the oldest civilization in Europe!

  • I love historic places, but let's be honest, this site was probably found as a big pile of stones where nothing was standing erect. Evans did a good job of digging it up but went to far in his own imagination of how the palace would have been. So everything that is 'still standing' has been built by Evans and all looks far to 'new'. A bummer.

  • Knossos palace being one of the most famous and important landmarks mentioned in history books of Ancient Greece along with the it's crucial role in Greek mythology, should hold a special place in every tourist's heart that decides to visit Crete. It is truly amazing what kind of marvels a civilization could achieve over 90 centuries ago. The only reason for deducting a star is that in many descriptions for the various rooms around the palace the information given was based upon the imagination and thoughts of a single researcher that discovered the ruins and not to specific scientific literature. For anyone that made it this far, please spend the extra Euro and visit the museum close to the port if Heraklion. The artifacts are truly magnificent

  • Nice place but feels fake to me. Evans recreated some buildings based on mostly his imagination. I don't want to see concrete ruins like in an amusement park. Unfortunately it is now too late to fix the damage done and mostly what you get to see is the imagination of one person.

  • If u know about Greek History you will love it. Wear comfortable shoes and maybe a hat if in summer time. The exhibition is very interesting and huge. You will be able to see differents rooms and parts of the Minoan Palaces and some great pics of the period.
