Knossós: Outbuildings Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The outbuildings include workshops for craftsmen, such as the one for potters (remains of kilns), and storerooms including one containing the pithoi (terracotta jars). From the central courtyard a passage lined by a portico decorated with animal sculptures leads to a room known as the Customs House. Not far away there is a lustral basin. The Royal Road probably led to Katsámbas and Amnisós, the ports of Knossós. It passes by a set of well-preserved terraces, thought to be part of a theatre mentioned by Homer as the setting for ritual dances.
