The most famous and popular of all attractions in Crete is the Palace of Knossos. Join your expert guide on a journey of 5000 years ,  into myths and legends and learn the secrets of the oldest civilization  in Europe, the Minoan.

The archeological site of Knossos,  is sited 5 km southeast of the city of Heraklion. There is   evidence   that this location was inhabited during the Neolithic times ( 6000 BC ). On the ruins of the Neolithic settlement was built the first Minoan Palace (1900 BC) where the dynasty of Minos ruled. This was destroyed in 1700 BC and a new palace built in this place. Between 1700 – 1450 BC   the   Minoan   civilization was at its peak and Knossos was the most important   city state. During these years the city was destroyed twice by earthquakes and rebuilted.

Enjoy a guided tour of the historical site that covers  an area of 22.000 m2, on 5 floors  with 1.300 rooms and hear all about the legendary  labyrinth and the Minotaur ( the half – human monster).

It’s worth to see it, on any visit to Crete.
