Palace Of Knosos, Crete Reviews

  • Located on the island of Crete, this ancient capitol has a long history of human habitation. The first palace was built around 1900 BC on the ruins of previous settlements. The area includes workshops, storage areas, fresco's, irrigation drains and underground piping. They were so advanced they even had indoor toilets that we're flushed with rain water held in cisterns. The palace was considered the center of Minoan times and it's position allowed for growth, trade and prosperity.

  • An amazing ruin, able to walk into and around the palace. Lots of fantastic photo opportunities. Probably one of my favourite locations in Greece/Crete in order to learn about how complex and big the palace had been all those years ago.

  • The oldest city in Europe. Beautiful and awesome to explore. A little bummed about the "guesswork" that went into restoration but there is still plenty of untouched ruins to enjoy.

  • Very nice place to spend the morning or afternoon( avoid hottest hours), full of historic information, very nivel to take pictures, nearby there is plenty of places to eat, and lots of souvenirs at a very good price. This is a must visit if you're in Crete, I can't remember well but I you have to pay for parking, people in Crete drive like bonkers, so don't left the car on the road..... Good luck and enjoy Crete!

  • This is one of these places one ought to have seen I think. I found it difficult to appreciate the wonderfully preserved ruins of this ancient palace, because of the great number of tourists trying to do the same. This meant queues for the entrance, queues for the toilets, even queues for trying to snap a photo. Got this one though!
