Agia Triada

Agia Triada is located some km west of Phaistos. Even though the area was first investigated as early as 1902, it was only recently that the exact location of a Minoan centre was unearthed. Indeed, several researchers have begun referring to a palace (instead of a royal villa) over the past few years, since this is where the New Palace capital of Messara was located. According to plaques in Linear B script, it used to be named Pa-l-to (probably Phaistos) or Da-wo.
