GREEK CITIES AND GREEK ISLANDS
Phaistos, Gortys and Matala Tour

The palace of Phaistos was built as the king's winter palace and the retreat of the priesthood, around the same time as Knossos. But somehow you will sense a totally different "feel" to the place. Mysterious and beautiful, the setting of Phaistos is spectacular, overlooking the broad sPhaistos, Gortys and Matala, Daily Tours From Heraklion Port, Greece Ports Daily Tours, Greece Ports, Athens Portweep of the Plain of Messara and out to the sea, while the Psiloreitis massif rises to the north-west.

Phaistos was excavated by Italian archaeologists, and unlike Knossos has not undergone much reconstruction. However, you'll see a similar layout of labyrinthine corridors and stairways, also with a central court, all on a smaller scale.

Many of the treasures in Heraklion Museum were unearthed in the area, for example the Boxer, Chieftain and Harvester vases; but undoubtedly the most famous find is the Phaistos Disc.

This exquisite little clay disc, only seven inches in diameter, has on each side a hieroglyphic inscription, as yet undeciphered, spiralling towards the centre. Its 241 tiny figures include people, animals, birds, insects, ships and vases.

If the Phaistos Disc fascinates you, the visit to Gortys will intrigue you further. (In fact usually the first stop on this day out). The site of Gortys was a Roman city, established in 67 B.C. as the capital of Crete. It is where the first Dorian settlers set down their Code of Laws - some 1,700 characters carved on massive blocks of stone. These laws dealt with matters as diverse as divorce, mortgages, and the treatment of slaves.

To round off the day nicely, a short drive takes us to Matala, where we can cool off with a swim, relax and enjoy lunch. Most of the tavernas overlook the half-moon shaped bay, and you'll notice some curious caves in the cliffside. These were first hewn out of the cliff by the Romans to use as catacombs, and subsequently inhabited by early Christians. The Germans set up artillery positions there in World War II, then during the sixties they were occupied by hippies!
