At the premises of the Equestrian Club in Karteros, we created an area of cultural activities, the Minoan Theater. Our visitors will indulge their senses to the beauty and greatness of an important era, that of The Minoans, which remained in history as the Pinnacle of Peace and Prosperity.
It has been written that they may have been the happiest people to walk the earth.
Their famous capital, Knossos, is decorated with wonderful frescoes full of cheerful colours, slender, young ladies and athletic men. They were peaceful people who were after good sportsmanship at least 1,000 years before the first Olympic Games. The labrys and the bull, which they confronted in dangerous bull-leaping rituals, are the sacred symbols of this civilization.
