| The prefecture of Heraklion lies between the prefectures of Rethymnon and Lasithi. |
Its capital is also Heraklion and the biggest town of Crete. It has approximately 150,000 inhabitants.
It concentrates the biggest economical activity of the island and attracts many tourists every year. There are so many sites which worth visiting that you can't decide where to go first.
Within the Heraklion Prefecture's boundaries are a number of significant Neolithic and Minoan settlements, most notably the ancient palace complexes of Knossos and Phaistos. While both archaeological sites evince Neolithic habitation, it is the rich finds of Minoan civilisation, which flourished approximately 2000 to 1600 BC, that command the greatest scholarly attention.
