This palace is located in the city of Malia, located 37 kilometers from Heraklion, in the northern part of Crete.
Malia is the third largest palace in Crete. It is located in a very good location – in close proximity to the sea and on the road that connects central and eastern Crete.
The first palace in this place was built in 1900 BC. It was the residence of the brother of Minos – Sarpidon. Before the palace, there was already a settlement, which, together with the new building, formed a city-palace.
The first palace stood until 1700 BC. It was rebuilt again in 1650 according to the same plan. In 1450 BC, the palace was completely destroyed. During the Mycenaean domination, a small sanctuary was built here.
