Largest Bronze Age archaeological site on Crete island – Knossos palace, Greece


It’s time to walk around the old stone paths of Knossos, the cradle of Minoan civilization. The palace of Knossos, the center of Minoan civilization, constituted the main force of the island’s population during the Bronze Age. The guide will speak to Domes guests about the Minoan Civilization, Associated Greek Mythology and the excavations of Knossos Palace.

This is the exact location where European civilization began. Knossos symbolizes the era of King Minos and it is a place full of myths and legends. Surely, you have already heard of Theseus, the Minotaur and the Labyrinth. Flourishing between 3,000BC and 1400BC, the palace of Knossos strangely disappeared. English archeologist Sir Arthur Evans discovered it at the turn of the century. Now, the remains of the Knossos Palace with its blood red columns and gigantic double-headed axes are a vivid reminder of the Minoan heritage.
