Knossos Crete Greece: Knossos is the largest Minoan palace. The palace was built around 2000 BC. People suspect that the palace was destroyed by the outburst of the volcano of Santorini (around 1450 BC). . The palace was excavated and partially restored under the direction of Arthur Evans 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. Knossos is opened all year round.
