Minoan Palace

Less crowded than Knossos but also less restoration has been performed. The site has spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and mountains.

Had dinner here twice, the mexe was to die for it just kept coming, the lady on the front door was lovely always took time to talk to you, the head waiter or owner was just mad, so no more.

Somewhere you must go and keep the good memories for the long winter nights. We really recommend. We will come back.

Nice to be at a place with so much history in the air! Try to visit the place in the late afternoon as there is a splendid view over the hill!
