Diktaeon Andro Cave

Diktaeon Andro Cave

The Diktaeon Andro is located on the side of a mountain above the picturesque plateau of Lasithi at a height of 1.025 m west of the village of Psychro. The cave can be reached by going to the outskirts of the village of Psychro (48 km east of Heraklion and 2 km west of Agios Nikolaos), where there is a path ascending to it. The view from the cave entrance is marvelous. The cave is not only a famous archaeological site, and among the most important in prehistoric Greece, but also one of the most beautiful and impressive of the 3.400 caves on Crete. One can go from the village to the cave on foot or by mule or donkey, which can be rented from the locals. A steep path leads to a small level area in front of the narrow entrance to the cave.
