Palace of Faistos reviews
Crete has two palaces: Knossos and Phaistos. Phaistos has three advantages over Knossos - it has unreconstructed ruins to reward photographers. is without crowds, and overlooks the Messara Valley... more »
Nice place to visit if you are in the vicinity, not expensive. Due to Corona, a lot was closed off, but we were informed accordingly beforehand. more »
Amazing view. Great experience and worth the drive. The staff was polite and helpful and the Palace was much more relaxing than Knossos. It is also more original than Knossos and hasn't been reconstructed. So most of what you see is virtually untouched compared to Knossos.
It is a palace that people built it almost 6000 years ago. Just that fact gives you the chills. No marble etc. only what that hill had to offer, and the job the archeologists did to keep it up is stunning. A "must go" place in Crete if you like history
