The Labyrinth of Crete & The Myth of the Minotaur

Crete is the largest island in Greece and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean. Well known for its beautiful coastline full of coves, bays, peninsulas, and sandy beaches, it is also a place of historic importance as the home of the Minoan civilization ( 3000-11-BC) during the Bronze Age. To date, much important archaeological finds have been discovered in Crete including Knossos Palace, pottery, tool, inscription and arts as well ass the famous Labyrinth of Messara, of which it is popularly associated with the myth of the Minotaur.

The Minotaur was a bull-man mythical creature often depicted in religious ceremonies during the Minoan civilization. He was believed to be the offspring of Queen Pasiphae of Crete and a bull sent from the sea god Poseidon as punishment to Minos, Pasiphae's husband , for angering him. The Minotaur was banished to the labyrinth of Messara, a twisting maze. Youths and maidens were offered as regular sacrifice to the Minotaur to satisfy his cannibalistic hunger. Theseus, himself once of the youths to be sacrificed, defeated the Minotaur and was pronounced a hero warrior.
