Full Description

Excavated mainly by the British Victorian Sur. Arthur Evans in the early 20th century for 30 years.

On our visit and tour of Knossos together we see the site that covers an area of 20.000sq.mt.

You will have the opportunity to see the oldest throne of Europe, some of the oldest drainage systems we have in the world, the oldest Theater within Europe a sophisticated building and center of the Minoan civilization of the Bronze Era.

Areas of cult, workshops, temples, shrines, storage areas, cleansing rooms, bathing areas as well as toilets.

One ponders and admires the level of sophistication and technological skills and abilities of the people we call the Minoans.

Knossos, a complex of more than 1500 interlocking rooms, was an astonishing palace, built for a mighty king of the Bronze Age. As you wander through the labyrinthine ruins, you will have the chance to see the original throne of ‘’Minos”, the mystifying sanctuaries, the luxurious domestic quarters of the royal family, the once upon a time bursting with Crete’s treasures pantries and the astonishing water-management systems!

Knossos is considered Europe’s oldest city. The first palace of Knossos was erected soon after 2000 BC. In 1700 BC, a catastrophic earthquake destroyed the Palace. A new palace was then immediately built, the most significant and monumental of all and for more than 300 years it represented the pre-eminent center of power in Bronze Age Crete. The new palace was an imposing complex with important architectural innovations, splendid frescoes adorning the walls, hundreds of rooms distributed in four storeys, impressive storage areas, specialized workshops and spacious courts hosting ceremonies and feasts.
