Phaistos, Hagia Triada & Gortyn

Phaistos palace with its architectural plan is exquisite in its design. Phaistos was the home of Radamanthis, the brother of the legendary king of Minos. 

The Agia Triada complex is thought to have been a villa or small palace,  which was built at the end of the Middle Minoan period (2000-1550 BC).

Homer mentions Gortyn as one of the major cities of Crete and says that had a strong wall around.

Plato says that Gortyn had the most organized law system in Crete, which was confirmed by the inscription-law which found there. Also many coins with Europe representation on the back of the bull, some others with a lion's head etc. It seems that the people honored Europe as a great goddess!
