    At Palaces Of Knossos | Nikos Kazantzakis | ISBN: | Kostenloser Versand für alle Bücher mit Versand und Verkauf duch Amazon.5/5(1). Rather than considering the functions of the Palaces, I want to discuss in this chapter matters of form. From this point of view, the five known Minoan Palaces—Knossos, Phaistos, Malia, Galatos, and Zakros (fi g. )¹—reveal a fascinating balance between consistency and individuality.

    An abridged and edited translation of: Sta palatia tēs Knōsou With the help of the princess Ariadne and other friends in the palace at Crete, Theseus enters the Labyrinth and slays the hideous Minotaur, thus spearheading the resistance of the Athenian people against King MinosPages: Knossos. The archaeological site of Knossos (on the island of Crete) —traditionally called a palace—is the second most popular tourist attraction in all of Greece (after the Acropolis in Athens), hosting hundreds of thousands of tourists a year.

    It is impossible to visit Crete without touring the Palace of Knossos, the pre-eminent Minoan settlement and one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Discovered in the late s by Minos Kalokerinos, it was excavated by Sir Arthur Evans for 30 years and is linked through Cretan myths with King Minos, son of Zeus and Europa. It covered an area of 22, sq.m. About rooms could be seen in the original palace and people lived in them (the Royal family of Knossos and their servants). The king was called Minos, son of Zeus. On the island of Crete there are 4 Minoan Palaces but the Palace of Knossos is the greatest of all.
