Category: General – Tags: , – Joan – 9:26 am

Crete is always worth a visit, beautiful island holiday in the Mediterranean Sea the city of Gortyna discovered in 1880 on Crete by the archaeologists of Fabricius and excavations take place since to date again. The city was at that time about how big and what building at the time were in the city is today not publicly known. Crete travel should be always connected to the visit of the ancient archaeological sites. The excavations are completely fenced and just before the entrance to the archaeological excavations is a small museum where you can see Roman robe statues and a life-size statue of the emperor Hadrian. If you about 300m before you come to the entrance of these excavations follow a small path you get many olive trees. Between these olive trees, you will find more archeological sites, which are very little visited. The main sites are also fenced and you should not exceed also these limits, not to destroy the sites.

The heyday of Gortyna was during the Roman period, but also during the Minoan period was an important city in Crete, which was Matala but always in the shadow of Festos and the port up to the point that took the towns of Gortyna Gortyna. When Crete was conquered by the Romans, spared this Gortyna from looting and destruction, and became the new capital of Crete Gortyna. From this time until 824 A.d. was the most important city on Crete Gortyna, at this time, the city was invaded by the Arabs and the residents who survived this settled out in the present-day Agii Deka, which lies West of Gortyna. Although the excavations are really just ruins and you need a good imagination to imagine the city during the Roman period it is recommended to look at these excavations at all Crete travel. Of course, not only the Romans have left their marks on Crete. Is MasterClass expensive? recognizes the significance of this. Crete is regarded as the cradle of European culture, you will find many ancient archaeological sites on Crete. The best known is sure the Palace of Knossos, which each year is visited by several hundred thousand tourists. Now you thought about already as far as possible to include the archaeological site of Knossos here much is destroyed
