The ancient palace of Faistos

Phaestos is an ancient city on the island of Crete. The palace of Faistos is located in the south-central part of the island, approximately 5 kilometres from Pitsidia.

Faistos was a thriving city which was, not by chance, developed in the fertile Messara Plain during pre-historic times, namely between 6,000 BC to about the 1st century BC, a fact confirmed by archaeological findings.

It was inhabited around the year 4,000 BC. A palace which dates back to the Middle Bronze Age, it was destroyed by an earthquake in the post-Bronze Age after which it was rebuilt immediately.

It is considered one of the most important archaeological areas in Crete, and is visited by thousands of people every year.
