Photographer's Note

View of the large paved West Court and Theatral Area at the palace of Phaistos. It is bounded by a high wall which supports the Upper Court which is on a higher level. At the foot of the wall are eight wide steps which formed the seats for spectators to view religious events and festivals taking place in court. These date from the time of the first palace (1900-1700 BC). To the side of the court is the Grand Staircase with its twelve steps which lead up to the New Palace.

WS: Same, but from different angle.
