Very good experience long uneven path leading to cave, as we walked there would have liked some info at the point of entry as we never had any in our hotel as the history is fascinating

Make sure you have lots of sun cream on as you will be walking across a path to get to the caves. Once inside you will need a torch from our mobile phone. There is a church in the caves with bones inside from the people who suffered.

High in mountains with breath taking views. Need a light or torch as cave is dark. Historical and emotional place to visit.

Very basic, no entrance fee or gift shop but a huge amount of Cretan history. Sorry to be so basic but wear comfortable shoes & remember being caves will be cooler than outside. You may want to consider taking rope/string with you as the caves are very extensive & you may want to explore. Ignore the dilapidated building you first... More

This is a very different attraction - it is free as at this time there is no-one looking after it - this means that there are no lights in the cave and no guide or anyone to tell you the history so you need to look up the history before you go to have a feeling of what the people... More

The walk to the cave is absolutely beautiful, and make sure you read upon your history before so that you are able to appreciate what happened there. I think that it is so nice because you don't need a tour guide and there are no other tourists so you are able to take all the time you need to take... More

I can't do better on finding the cave, or the visit itself, than Geobar01's excellent description from October 2013, so I won't even try. We came from Sissi and had no real problems finding the cave, but the journey itself was a good part of the visit - excellent views and places to stop for a little while and, as... More
