KNOSSOS

the Palace of Minos


The ancient city of Knossos was the cradle of the Minoan civilization.

Today there stands the restored palace, where King Minos -son of Europa- lived with his wife Pasiphae and his daughter Ariadne.

Today, still live exciting myths of the Labyrinth, the Minotaur, Theseus, Daedalus and Icarus, all link with Knossos history.
