Phaistos. Crete. Greece. View of three levels of the palace of Phaistos which is magnificently sited on a rocky crest overlooking the fertile Messara Plain. In the foreground is the upper level with its Hellenistic ruins: below it is the west court with the theatral area and grand staircase which leads to the vast central court in the distance. The Minoan palatial city of Phaistos or Phaestos was the second most important Minoan palatial city in Crete after Knossos and is situated in central southern Crete in the Iraklio prefecture. Crete is Greece’s largest island and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean.
