05 Phaistos, Aghia Triada, Matala
A few kilometers from Sivas, on a hill overlooking the Messara is Phaistos. This is the second archaeological site on Crete. Unlike Knossos, no reconstitution. Here, the bases of the columns and walls of a meter. This obviously makes it more complicated understanding of the site. Young Italian archaeologists are trying to stir the earth. What courage with heat he does.
And everywhere bougainvillea
Three kilometers of Phaistos is a small site Aghia Triada. If there were not many people at Phaistos, there is even less in Agia Triada. Yet the site is hardly readable.On the site overlooking the sea, a small chapel
In the afternoon, we go to Matala. Matala is a resort living remembrance of his hippie past. No one remembers that this is where Zeus would have approached Crete with young Europe, or that Egyptian ships tied up there to trade with the Minoans, or the Roman legions had made port refueling Gortyne . Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens came to Matala. Have they slept in caves dug into the cliff? And they knew that the men had dug these caves to protect themselves and have used it in the graveyard? Again the small town is not busy. No doubt she wake up at night.
Anyway, despite the wind bathing is very pleasant.
