The Psychro Cave, also known as the Diktaean Cave, is the place where the infant Zeus was born and nursed by Amalthea. It was the site of a sanctuary, and human figurines found there during archaeological exploration show that it was in use as a burial site and place of worship since the Minoan times. Take a tour with an expert guide to learn all about the secrets and legends of the cave!
