2 1/2 hours to get there and it’s not open or operating it’s a bust. No one was there you can go in the entrance but you can’t go through the cave no lights on. CLOSED

The car park was crazily busy and we went around midday when we though it would be less busy (due to the hot weather). However, the parking attendents were helpful and we thought the price was reasonable. All the staff in the shops and restaurants...More

On the Island of Crete, up on the plateau of Lasithi, is a cave of wonders that is the legendary place where Zeus was hidden from his voraciously greedy father. One look upon this otherworldly place and you’ll understand how the ancient people would attribute...More
