One of Greece's most important archaeological sites, the Palace of Knossos was the epicentre of Minoan civilisation, and the huge maze-like complex is covered in murals depicting life in Bronze Age Crete. According to Greek mythology, this is where King Minos lived and built the labyrinth to contain his son, the Minotaur. Discover the various legends surrounding the palace before continuing on to Heraklion and visiting the Archaeological Museum, home to a vast collection of Minoan art and Greek artefacts.
