Malia, like Knossos, is an old Minoan palace complex, and is also easily reached from Iraklion. Unlike its more famous sibling however, little reconstruction work has been done. This allows the visitor to view the extensive remains as they were first discovered, and also see the ongoing archelogy. The site is also far less visited than Knossos, and you can wander among the ruins in relative peace.
