Magasa (Greek: Μαγκασά) is a Neolithic settlement on the eastern part of the island of Crete[1] in present-day Greece. Magasa is notable as a Neolithic Cretan settlement for some use of large room sizes in its multi-roomed residences.[2] The ben-and-but style of housing design with some use of mud-dried brick has been noted as similar to that found in Neolithic Knossos.[3]
