Milatos Cave was near our villa so we decided to visit late afternoon. It is worth reading up on its fascinating story first which made it much more interesting. It was a short walk along a gorge and it was very quiet when we went. The church inside with the bones on display was interesting and it's definitely worth a... More

Beautiful area, intruiging cave! I visited the cave as part of a 19 day road trip around Crete. We stopped here by happy accident before heading to Sisi (another charming city). Check out the vlog from that day if you want to see our reaction live! https://youtu.be/qw0h7siw0lg

An interesting location, with lots of stalactites and stalagmites view, however nothing too extraordinary, If you want to see a much more impressive cave i'd recommend the "zeus cave"

quite an uneven walk to the cave which was surrounded by flies, but inside was cool with a little church area. Torch needed. there was an English guy selling them but not sure he was an official.

do not listen to reps when they say it is only 30 mins from village not on foot hire a quad bike but you must have licence with you then 30 mins take torch as there is no lighting in cave worth the trip if only to see inside

Fantastic eerie place to visit with a haunting history behind it. Remember to take torches, sensible shoes and a drink. Well worth the visit to local history.

Great to be able to wander into and around a cave without having to stick to designated pathways. However, learn from our mistake and take a torch to prevent stubbed toes!
