Lonely Planet review

A passage leads from the Hall of the Double Axes to the queen's megaron. Above the door is a copy of the Dolphin Fresco, one of the most exquisite Minoan artworks. A blue floral design decorates the portal. Next to this room is the queen's bathroom, complete with terracotta bathtub and a water closet, touted as the first ever to work on the flush principle; water was poured down by hand.
