Restoration drawing of the palace
Since 1900, continuous archaeological excavations from the
Italian Archaeological School, have brought to light the
magnificent Minoan palace of Phaistos with its great royal courts,
the great staircases, the theatre, the storerooms and the famous
disk of Phaistos.
The first palace was built at 2.000 B.C. This palace was destroyed
at 1.700 B.C. by an earthquake. It was built again, more luxurious
and magnificent and it was destroyed again, probably by another
earthquake, at 1.400 B.C.
The location of the palace was carefully chosen, so as not only

center of the area.
Goods not only for consumption but mainly for trade were kept in
its huge storerooms. The palace was surrounded by luxurious
mansions and crowded urban communities. Along with the surrounding
settlements covered an area of 18.000 sq. meters.
A paved road leads to the ruins of the Royal Minoan villa of Agia
Triada, 3 km west of Phaistos.
