Knossos, Crete

Knossos was the capital of the Minoan Civilization and was incredibly wealthy influential in its heyday. It was Europe’s oldest city and ruled over a massive trade empire during the Bronze age. The ruins of its magnificent palace spread out over 20,000 square meters on the hill of Kefalas, and the city is the setting for many well-known myths such as the Labyrinth with the Minotaur and Daedalus and Icarus.
