(1 Vote)

The Cave Faneromeni is located at an altitude of about 770m, above the village Avdou in Louloudaki massif. It is hard to access it, due to very steep slopes and dense vegetation. The cave is about 45m long, 9m high and its width varies from 4 to 12m. It has a rich cave decor including stalactites, stalagmites and columns. It's archaeological importance is also very high, as golden double axe (the symbol of the Minoans) was found here during excavations.
