Follow the evolution of Minoan fashion,learn about the popular hairstyles of the people and discover the beauty products that they used to touch up their look. At the West Magazines, where the storage facilities of the palace are located, you will gain an understanding of the well-organised bureaucracy that supported the palace organisation, the earliest forms of linear writing, as well as the Minoan economy and trade networks. Discover the copy of the “Prince of the Lilies” at the South Entrance Corridor and gaze out on Mount Juktas, perfectly framed by the eroded walls of the palace.
