The main interest of the ruins resides in the fact that Mália ceased to be inhabited at the end of the second millennium BC, after the natural disaster that struck all of northern Crete, so the original layout of the city is not cluttered by later constructions. Mália appears to the visitor like a line drawing of ochre-red stone.
