Crete's eastern corner is home to the resort of Aghios Nikolas, a port that leads the way to the island's most significant ancient ruins. The ancient Minoans lived on Crete as far back as 2500 BC in a society that was by far the most advanced at the time. The ruins of the Minoan palaces that remain today date from 1700 to 1500 BC and reveal remarkable achievements. You may wish to visit the fantastic ruins of the Palace of Knossos or Gournia, where an entire small town has been excavated. Gournia features a small palace, a shrine and a main street where many of the houses were evidently two stories high. Other significant periods in Crete's history include medieval times when Turkish artists and writers fled to Crete following the fall of Constantinople and resulting in a "Cretan Renaissance" era.
