Lasithi Caves - The Diktaion Cave, also known as the Cave of Zeus, is a must-visit attraction in Lasithi, Crete. Located just a short 10-minute walk from Psychro in the Lassithi Plateau, this cave sits at an impressive altitude of 1025m. To explore the secrets of this magnificent cave, head to Psychro where plenty of parking areas and restaurants await. From the parking area, there are two paths leading to the cave entrance. The left path is the easiest, while the right path, although the oldest, can be slippery due to the thousands of tourists who have walked on it. Along the route to the cave, the breathtaking view of the Lassithi Plateau is sure to leave you in awe. If walking is not your thing, donkeys are available to transfer visitors to the cave. At the entrance of the cave, there is a kiosk where you can purchase tickets at a small price. The cave, which spans an impressive 2200 sq. m., is well lit and has a well-designed path that stretches over 250m. The Diktaion Cave is one of the most spectacular caves in Crete, and a visit here is a must for anyone exploring the wonders of Lasithi.
