Dikteon Cave-LasithiThe Dikteon Cave (or Dikteon Andron) is one of the most important and famous of the 3,000 caves in Crete and the 8,500 in Greece.

It is in the impressive Dikteon Cave, rich in stalagmites and stalactites, that Zeus was born according to legend. This is why the Dikteon Cave was already famous in antiquity, dedicated to the worship of the greatest of the gods, as the many offerings found there indicate.

In our days the Dikteon Cave continues to receive many visitors, no longer worshipers, of course, but travelers from all over the world.
