Minotaur In A Maze

Did you know one of the oldest and most well-known ancient architectural mazes may have been found at the Minoan palace at Knossos on Crete?

Built around the same time as the Egyptian Labyrinth, Knossos was a vast interconnected complex of small corridors, staircases and private courts, and once consisted of perhaps 1,300 rooms spread over three acres of land. (WOW!)

Spiral and labyrinth designs on coins and pottery, as well as hundreds of bull-horns carved in stone and wall paintings of young men leaping over charging bulls, can be found at the site. These are intriguing clues, since according to Greek legend the Minotaur was a half-man and half bull monster, trapped within a Labyrinth, that devoured Athenian youth.

But if you can't get to Knossos in Greece, you can always enjoy the Mazes of MeiroKodo. And you won't have to worry about a hungry monster chasing after you.
