Crete – The Great Palace of Knossos

Renowned as the world’s richest and largest Minoan Site Knossos, the ancient Minoan capital city of Crete, Knossos was first inhabited during the Neolithic period and developed into a political and commercial hub right after the powerful King Minos built his palace in the 1900s BC. Even though the first palace was demolished in the 1700s, the powerful Minoans soon rebuilt the city and restored their power. The city of Knossos and its marvellous ancient ruins were discovered in 1978. Ever since Knossos was discovered it has been a major tourist attraction.

The Great Samaria Gorge of Crete

No one has ever visited Crete without at least hearing of the Samaria Gorge, which is also called Farangas by the locals. Samaria Gorge is without a doubt the most stunning gorge on the island.
