The Palace is also connected with thrilling legends, such as the myth of the Labyrinth with the Minotaur, and the story of Daidalos and Icaros.  Walking round the narrow corridors of the labyrinth construction you’ll have the opportunity to see artifacts and symbols of the culture developed in Crete 4000 years ago.  The myths come alive again after visiting the Palace of King Minos at Knossos.
