The Skotino cave can be found high on a hill Northwest of the village of Skotino, a few km inland South of Gouves. Some archeologists believe that this is the famous labyrinth of Crete. And not the location of Knossos. It’s 160m deep and 36m wide. It was also investigated by archeologist Sir Evans (of Knossos). The entrance of the cave is just below a church. A great example of how holy places shift from one religion to another.
