The maze that imprisoned the Minotaur in Greek mythology. According to the legend, the Labyrinth was located in Knossos, Crete in the Palace of Minos. Minos was one of the sons of Zeus and Minos was always loved by the gods and honored by Zeus. Minos wanted to offer a sacrifice so he asked his uncle Poseidon to send the best bull. Minos thought that the bull was so beautiful that he didn’t sacrifice the bull. So Minos kept him in the palace gardens. Poseidon then turned the bull into a ferocious animal. However, Pasiphae, daughter of Helios, fell in love with the bull. Their offspring was the half-human, half-bull Minotaur that eventually was kept in the Cretan Labyrinth.
