Central Court

Interesting
The Central Court was partially lined with porticoes with columns. As at Knossos, it was probably used for displays of bullfighting and sacrifices. There is a well in the southwest corner. On the left are traces of a crypt with two pillars and a room surrounded by benches that must have been a sanctuary. Further along is the Pillared Hall, covered with alabaster, leading into the storeroom corridor.
