Apart from the Minoan palace of Knossos, the presence of this great civilization can been seen throughout the prefecture in Festos, Malia and Gortyna. Its ancient history combined with the more recent historical monuments, the endless sandy beaches on the north and south coast, the amazing nightlife and the calm resorts, forms the colourful character of the area.
