In the manner of Theseus, come and discover Crete, following the thread trail we are unfolding !
According to the Cretan mythology, Minos, King of Crete, winner of the Athenians, had sentenced them to send him every nine years, seven young boys and seven girls to be devoured by the Minotaur, monster half-man and half-bull who was locked in the labyrinth designed by Daedalus in Crete.
Theseus, son of the king of Greece, decided to put an end to these sacrifices and went to Crete, among the 14 young men, to kill the Minotaur. Ariane, daughter of Minos, at the sight of this courageous being, fell in love with it and decided to help her in her task to avoid her death. In exchange for his help, in case of victory, Theseus swore to him to join his life to his.
Then, Ariane gave her the end of a thread from which she held the other end, so that it would not be lost in the labyrinth. With her ear outstretched and her eye fixed on the wire, she soon heard the cries of the Minotaur. Victory songs reached his ears : Theseus emerged victorious from the labyrinth with his companions.
