Our second stop is at 1049 meters altitude in the cave of Psychro, a place of worship in the first Minoan years. Legend has it that Jupiter was born here. Today visitors come from all over the world to discover the rare beauty of the cave and its history.
After leaving the Plateau and travelling a little further south, we visit the village of Krasi. The plane tree in the central square of the village has been declared a national monument and is one of the 5 oldest trees in Europe.
It is said that it is over 1000 years old and Krasi used to be the favourite place of N. Kazantzakis and other Cretan writers such as Varnalis and Avgeris. A stop at the traditional Cretan taverns, will fill you with unique flavors of traditional food and homemade sweets.
