Kamares Cave on Mount Psiloritis
The Kamares Cave contained a very distinct form of pottery, “Kamares”, dating back to 2000 B.C.; it is now on display in the Iraklion Museum. You can walk to the cave in 4 hours on a difficult path that is not well-marked. From Kamares you can reach the peak of Psiloritis. This is only recommended for experienced hikers.
