The most famous landmark of Crete, Knossos, is the absolute "must" for everybody who decides to spend his / her vacation on our beautiful island.                                     

One of the most impressive archaeological sites of Greece , the capital of the most powerful civilizations of the ancient world, the Minoan Civilization. Through the excavations, the legends and the history of the place we learn about its settlers : the Minoan people, the rulers of the Mediterranean . 

With its Palace that includes the room of murals, royal tombs and royal mansion Knossos is probably the most significant example of an era which left plenty of marks in history that can never be erased. The intricate structure of the corridors gave it the name Labyrinth , where according to the Myth, the legendary Minotaur used to live. A wonderful architectural plan, the use of rare & luxurious materials, the advantage techniques of construction and its drainage system make Knossos even today the most amazing site of Crete.

As our visit to Knossos ends, we are going to the nearby village of Patsides village to visit the "Minoan Farm". You will have the opportunity to taste the farm's products and wander in the estate that is fully planted with Cretan herbs.
