    Heraklion is the largest urban centre in Crete, the capital of the region, and the economic centre of this Greek Island. It is a town with modern buildings, but it is probably the surrounding area of amazing beaches, delightful villages, and impressive gorges that accord it its popularity. Heraklion is home to some of Greece's most important archaeological sites. Just five kilometres south of Heraklion is Knossos, one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe, and remains the legendary centre of the Minoan civilization from 1900 to 1400 BC.
