A trip to the Minoan Towns at the north, close to the city.

A short trip to the world wide known Knossos Palace and a couple more of other Minoan constructions.

Tylissos was a Minoan town where findings include remains of houses, a cistern and an aqueduct. Knossos is an infamous palace with the myth of Minotaur being the main reason for everyone to know about the palace. The construction has several levels and is rather complicated with a fully functional water and sewage system. Archanes was a major Minoan town with a cemetary at Fourni, a Minoan Mansion at Vathipetro and a sacred Temple at mountain Giouhtas.
