An interesting cave as it also doubles-up as a church. It lies in the village of Patsos, north-west of Spili and was used during Minoan through Roman times as a place of worship. Minoan finds from this cave are displayed in both the Herakleion museum and in Oxford's Ashmolean.

Close to Gerani beach, this cave's opening was blocked off for some 5,000 years, before being rediscovered in the 1960's. All archaeological finds therefore could be dated to the Neolithic and predate the period we know as 'Minoan'.

The scene for the massacre of some 350 Greek men, women and children by the Turks, in the 1823, who blocked the entrance and lit a fire, suffocating those trapped inside. This is a tremendously moving spot and can be found a couple of kilometres north-west of the village of the same name.
