  • On the way to Elafonissi, immediately after the Gorge of Topolia, after the tunnel on the right stands on the cliff the cave cavern which houses inside the small church of Agia Sofia, to get there you take a staircase of about 200 steps that climbs 80 meters, surpassing in its initial part a tavern. The entrance is guarded by staff who require a free offer, visiting the cave consists of a large room full of stalactites in itself requires a few minutes, as well as a visit to the ancient Church of safe construction and a devout pilgrimage. A place definitely suggestive, relaxing, particularly and especially cool!

  • Really worth to visit while in Western Crete especially if you're on the way to Milia or Elafonissi, a VERY beautiful cave!  more »
  • This is a nice stop on the road but no one specifically would travel to visit. There are over 200 steps up to the cave so nothing for those who have difficulty walking. Nice view on the mountainous landscape when coming up to the cave entrance. You can light a candle and then there is an info brochure right at the "entrance". The cave itself is not so big but it can take a few minutes to look around. At the bottom there is a taverna with a toilet. We managed to walk up, take a peek in the cave and go to the bathroom for 25 min. Good stop if you want to stretch your legs a bit.
