Knossos - Theatre

 

This paved area is referred to as the "Theatre", with a seating capacity (off picture to the left) of about 500 persons. The paved roadway crossing the "stage" is described as a processional way, leading to other buildings outside the Palace.  It is claimed to be the oldest paved road in Europe :-)

Well, who's going to argue with them about the age of the thing! Nice shot to show it off, keeping the people in gives it scale!

This is most impressive Tom. The oldest paved road in Europe is quite an accolade

I find this very interesting. Also the claim about being the oldest city in Europe (claim is on wiki). The oldest continuously inhabited place is Argos in Greece - about 2,000 years younger than Knossos.
I have caught up with your postings of this place Tom, it looks very interesting.
Still in better condition than most in the U.K. Tom smile
