Phaistos was a city of Minoan Crete. Today it is a municipality in south central Crete and is located about 62 km south of Heraklio. It is the second largest palace after Knossos, as it occupies an area of 18 acres.
We see footage from a car, a road sign pointing in the direction of Moires and Phaistos and a small church, all alone in the meadow.
We enter a village (perhaps Moires) where we fall into a flea market: customers, passers-by, motorbikes, cars.
The road trip continues on the verdant island, a dusty road sign, we can only see the arrow that points to Ag. Trinity and we realize that we are in the Municipality of Phaistos, as Ag. Triada is a village over there, which is also a place of archeological finds.
The filmmaker’s girlfriend moves between the ruins of the archeological site with a panorama of the valley of Messara.
A panoramic view of the ancient palaces’ buildings that, contrary to Knossos, have not been restored, a surviving stairway and lastly the filmmaker’s girlfriend in front of a closed door, at some part of the building.
