Caving in Lasithi (Crete)

There are many caves to explore in this district, including one of the most famous in Greece. Psychro cave (also known as the Diktaeon Andron Cave), can be found just above the Lasithi plateau, and is steeped in mythological importance, for this is the place where the great god Zeus was supposed to have been born.


 


In Greek mythology, this is the spot where the great god Zeus was supposed to have been born (though some say that the more likely spot is at Petsofas on the east coast).

Sometimes called Cronos Cave, this cave can be found on the Lasithi plateau, near the village of Tzermiado, at an elevation of 660 metres. Bones found within have been dated back to neolithic times (pre 3,600 BC).
