Diktean Cave : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The famous Diktean Cave is supposed to have sheltered Rhea as she gave birth to Zeus, the future master of the gods and of the universe. It was also a place of worship from the Middle Minoan period. Perched at an altitude of 1 025m, it is the main attraction in the region. The cavern, down into which visitors take a very steep staircase, is made up of a large chamber. Lower down, this divides into four annexes, then you reach a tiny subterranean lake.
