Knossos – Heraklion Car Hire at the Best Prices!
Knossos is one of Crete’s main attractions. Around 4,000 years ago, the first Palace of Knossos was completed. It is said that Knossos was Europe’s first city! It was a cultural center under the leadership of King Minoas, whose palace was in Knossos.
There were 1500 rooms, courtyards, kitchens, theaters and big jars known as putharia in the palace. In order not to rot, these jars will hold a lot of food and keep it at the right temperature. Much like a classic fridge! The palace was also designed to retain the warmth in the winter and the coolness in the summer. So it’s remarkable to consider that 4,000 years ago this all happened!
