Malia Minoan Palace, Malia
Explore Malia Minoan Palace to see what's left of the palace built here several thousand years ago. The palace was constructed in 1900 BCE but was destroyed 200 hundred years later. The ruins you'll see are from the rebuilt palace, which replaced the former in 1700 BC. Begin at the small museum, where you will see a model of the palace as it would have looked originally. At the north end of the palace, visit the necropolis where the famous gold bee pendant--now on display in a museum in Heraklion--was uncovered. Learn about the Minoans relationship with their Gods by examining the round table in the central court, where they placed seeds as offerings to the deities. Put Malia Minoan Palace into our Malia online trip builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
