A visit to Crete is incomplete without visiting the renowned Minoan Palace of Knossos! This fabulous site is dating back 4000 years ago. Two brilliant palaces built in Neolithic times... Visit the room of the throne and the fresco's depicting the Prince of Crete. 

Every single stone suggests that a great civilization was born in this very place. Dating from 2000 BC this site remains one of the wonders of the world.

The town of Heraklion is the largest urban center of Crete, the capital of the region of Crete and the economic center of the island. During the Minoan period, the town of Heraklion served as a port to Knossos. 

Since the Minoan period the town of Heraklion became the host of varied cultures and

civilizations whose indelible marks are visible in the form of fountains, castles, walls, palaces, and other monuments. Heraklion is a heaven for architects and historians, as well as a cosmopolitan town, particularly during the summer period when thousands of visitors can be seen shopping in the market or visiting the museums. 

The city has a lot to offer to those who are in search of culture and entertainment.
