The Shrine Rooms, Festos
Two of these rooms are joined and their walls are flanked by benches. Cult objects such as vases were found here. These and other artefacts discovered are displayed in the Iraklion Museum. It is believed that animal sacrifices were performed in this area due to the evidence of charred bones found in a pit (sacrificial hearth).
