Fandaxospiliara

The cave of Fandaxospiliara, one of the many caves in Rethymno prefecture, is located in the village Prinos, up on the hill of Koule, approximately 10 km far from Rethymno.

The Fandaxospiliara, with a total length of 210 meters, has 11 halls, two of which are impressively decorated by stalagmites and stalactites.

Inside Fandaxospiliara archaeological findings of Minoan, Hellenistic and Roman times were discovered, while outside the cave there were some remains of Late-Minoan ceramics. These findings suggest that it must have been a religious center throughout this period of time.
