Athens 2004 Olympic Games Pin
Heraklion is the largest city and the administrativecapital of the island of Crete, Greece. It is one of the largest cities in Greece.
Heraklion is close to the ruins of the palace of Knossos, which in Minoan times was the largest centre of population on Crete. Though there is no archaeological evidence of it, Knossos may well have had a port at the site of Heraklion as early as 2000 BC.
