The Palace : Michelin's recommendations
This Minoan palace, which was destroyed in c 1 500 BC, was smaller and less luxurious than Knossós, but similar in layout, built around an outer and a central courtyard. There is an enormous terracotta vase (pithos) 1.75m high, which could hold over 1 000 litres of wine or oil. The central courtyard was bordered on the north and east sides by porticoes; religious and official buildings occupied the western side.
