Rethymno - Knossos – Spinalonga

Rethymno - Knossos – Spinalonga

Driving east, along the north coast and enjoying a lovely view of the dark blue waters of the Cretan Sea, we reach the city of Heraklion. Our first stop is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world -the famous Minoan palace of Knossos. This is where European civilization began, an era ruled by powerful King Minos, a place full of myths and legends, (think Theseus, the Minotaur and the Labyrinth). The layout of the palace was so complicated, the courtiers needed a plan to move through it. Flourishing between 3,000 BC and 1,400 BC, it strangely disappeared, only to be discovered again by the English archeologist Sir Arthur Evans at the turn of the century. Now, partly reconstructed , blood red columns and gigantic double-headed axes are a vivid reminder of this forgotten and disappeared race.
