... was built to lock the Minotaur in. Today there is just some stones and other pieces of rubble but from what I imagined I think the palace would be really impressive especially for something that was built 4000 years ago.

On our first full day in Heraklion, we followed a sightseeing route suggested by the hotel. First stop was Platia Eleftherias, or Freedom Square, which has a monument to the Unknown Soldier and commemorates Greece's freedom - we saw eucalyptus trees here!
Next was the old Venetian Port where we saw the Koules Venetian Fortress - but only from the outside! It's ...
