Cave of the Sacred Icon of Agios Giannis

Cave in Iraklia

The Cave of the Sacred Icon of Agios Giannis features a large open cave plus white-painted rocks surrounding the tiny entrance to the main sequence of caves. A torch is useful for an initial scramble along a low-roofed tunnel that leads to caves full of stalactites and stalagmites. The cave can be reached on foot from Agios Giorgios in about two hours (one-way).
