Zeus's cradle

Back to Crete, we had to walk up for 20 mins so we could walk down to the cave.  This was taken in the Diktaian Cave a possible birth place of Zeus which is off the Lassithi Plateau.

I have heard of this place is it worth a visit
Nigel Clack: I have seen better caves in New Zealand, but if you are in the area it's not too bad. I didn't get time to explore the plateau and surrounding villages, which I think may have more to offer.
An impressive look place Nigel..Good one.
