Malia Palace, koulouresMalia Palace, the kouloures

Just before we enter the main area of Malia Palace, we stop in the west paved court, whose southern end is blocked by a row of circular structures that archaeologists call “kouloures".

These structures were covered with a roof supported by a central pillar and were used to store cereals; in other words, they were the granaries of the palace, vital for feeding the inhabitants.
