zakros

Zakros is a beautiful place where you can find not only an extraordinary bay, a Minoan Palace and a spectacular gorge, but also one of a kind sunrises, sunsets and exceptionally good food. Especially in the taverns, you can enjoy the local food with fresh ingredients, usually gathered by their gardens. Of course of place you should definitely visit is the Palace of Zakros.

The Palace of Zakros is one of the latest remains of the Ancient Minoan civilization and was found in our times. It is considered the last of the Minoan Palaces and is one of the rare palaces that has come into light as a whole. It is located in the east coast of Crete, south of Palaikastro. The location is perfect since it works as a shelter from the dangerously strong north winds.
