Discovered in the eighteenth-century, the ruins of Knossos have become the largest archaeological site that dates back to the Bronze Age. It is known as the Europe’s oldest city which acted as the main political, economic and cultural center for Minoan civilization. The Palace of Knossos is spread over six acres and has more than twelve hundred rooms. All these rooms are well-connected and also has large hallways along with huge storerooms and a theater. The palace has undergone numerous renovations throughout the centuries. Though it is hard to understand the original plan, the ruins still help a lot in understanding this ancient civilization. Why this palace was abandoned and left neglected at the end of the Bronze Age, is still a mystery. You can explore this site for hours and step back in time.
