CHANIA & OTHER CRETAN SIGHTSEEINGS

Knossos was the most important city of Crete before the Roman era and the center of the first brilliant European Culture of the Minoan. The City Palace is the most visited archaeological site in Crete. The palace was the seat of the legendary King Minos and has been associated with famous Greek myths, like that of Daedalus and Icarus, the Labyrinth and the Minotaur. Minos was not a person, but a series of kings with the same name (as we say Pharaoh in Egypt). He was deified and he was thought to be the son of Europa and Zeus, as described in the story of the Rape of Europe.
The palace of Knossos is presented in historical accounts from the Neolithic to the early Byzantine era. The oldest traces date back to the 7th to the 4th millennium BC until 1900 BC. When they demolished the old buildings to build a larger palace that occupied 22 acres and seems to have been destroyed by an earthquake in 1700 BC. In its place was built the most extraordinary of all times. In 1450 BC the great destruction of the tsunami or earthquake occurred with the eruption of the volcano of Santorini, later the Mycenaeans arrived and in 1350 the palace was deserted, yet the city of Knossos continued until 500 AD.
