Visit the Cave of Zeus which is one of the most important cult places of Minoan Crete from 2800-2300 B.C. According to Mythology, at the cave of Psychro Zeus was born under great secrecy because there was an oracle which said that Saturn would kill him because of his fear that one of his children would take his throne. That's why when a baby was born, Saturn swallowed his children. His wife and sister, Rea, hid their last child, Zeus, and gave Saturn a bandaged stone to swallow, instead of the baby. Zeus, when he grew up, killed Saturn by giving him to drink poison. In order to reach at the Cave of Psychro you have 15 minutes’ walk or you can get a donkey that the locals provide there. The panoramic view from the top of the hill will, take your breath away. Cave is amazing, small and easy to explore and inside the cave it is lovely and cool even on a hot summer day!
