Cretan History



Lavyrinthaki Cave
(4 votes)

Cave Lavyrinthaki is located 50km south of Heraklion, on a small hill between the villages Plouti and Moroni. It is a small ancient quarry, with an approximately large room of 300 sq. meters, while the height at some point reaches 4m. There are several columns for supporting the roof.

The name Lavyrinthaki (small Labyrinth) is taken due to its vicinity with the main cave Labyrinth, which was also used in ancient times as a quarry for the extraction of the stones used to build the Minoan palace of Phaestus, the Minoan villa of Agia Triada and the Roman city of Gortys. Between the two caves there is no connection.
