The Palace of Malia
Malia 700 07, Greece
The Palace of MaliaLike Knossos, Malia is an ancient Minoan palace complex, easily reached from Iráklion. Unlike its more famous sibling, however, little reconstruction work has been done here. This means you can view the extensive remains as they were first discovered, and also witness the ongoing archaeological work. The site is also far less visited than Knossos; you'll wander among the ruins in relative peace.
