Cave of Jesus Christ

The cave of Jesus Christ is on the northwest of Kastelli, at the place “Petrades”, at an altitude of 360 meters. In 1934 the cave attracted J. Pendlebury’s attention, a British archaeologist, who made his research, as P. Faure did 20 years later.

Excavations in the cave have shown prehistoric findings from the Minoan period but also remains of historical times, Roman and Byzantine era, confirming the timeless ritual use of the area from early antiquity until today.
