Besides the tourist character of Malia a visitor could also enjoy a very interesting archeological tour to the Palace of Malia.
As the sea breeze moves through the rose bays the dazzling sun rays light the Minoan Palace of Malia, the third most important Minoan site of the Prefecture. The Minoan name for the Palace is not known and it takes its name from a local town. The first palace to be constructed on the site was built around 1900 BCE. Little is known of this palace though some finds from the Old Palace period attest to the wealth of the Old Palace at Malia. This palace was later destroyed, probably by an earthquake. The first attempt to excavate the site was made in 1915 by Joseph Hadzidakis but the full excavation of the Palace and much of the surrounding town was conducted by the French Archaeological School under F. Chapouthier and are still continuing today. Like the other palaces Malia has a west court.
