10. Palace of Knossos
Knossos, the famous Minoan Palace lies 5 kms southeast of Heraklion in Crete built gradually between 1700 and 1400 BC. According to Greek mythology, the palace was designed by famed architect Dedalos with such complexity that no one placed in it could ever find its exit. However, the main function of the palace is still an ongoing debate. It could have been probably used as an administrative center or a religious center. "Knossos on Crete never was a palace of the legendary King Minos, but rather a temple, designed for initiations and other ceremonies and rituals" argues Rodney Castleden, author of The Knossos Labyrinth: A New View of the 'Palace of Minos' at Knossos.
