What you'll do

Our day will start visiting the most important archaeological site on Crete, the Minoan palace of Knossos, the mythical Labyrinth of Homer.

We will be visiting an amazing area of 22,000sq meters. A prehistoric “city”, the place where the oldest European civilization started and flourished some 5000 years ago. Concentrating on the prehistoric era of the island, you will reveal its unique historic course and penetrate into its ancient myths, arts and ritual practices.

In a beautiful nature park near Knossos, we will experience an hour and a half session on the Minoan Ritual Dance, in theory and practice.

Based on the ancient Minoan Art depictions and ancient literature, we will attempt an approach on the ancient Minoan ritual dance. What was the meaning of the Labyrinth? What was the “Labyrinth Dance” of Ariadni?
