Knossos Crete Greece: Knossos is the largest Minoan palace. The Minoans built the palace around 2000 BC. People suspect that the palace was destroyed by the outburst of the volcano of Santorini (around 1450 BC). Arthur Evans excavated and partially restored the palace in the earliest years of the 20th century. Unfortunately he used a lot of imagination while rebuilding Knossos. The labyrinth en de King’s Hall stayed intact. You can visit Knossos all year round.
