This cave is located 1 km east of the village Kapsodasos at an altitude of 296m. It is one of the most beautiful caves of Chania, with beautiful decor and great archaeological value. The cave was known to locals, but officially discovered in 1963, following the guidance of Aristotle Foukarakis, who was a teacher in Patsianos, where he investigated superficially. The research has brought to light pottery finds, as proof that the cave was used as a sanctuary in the Hellenistic period and the early Roman. Two of the types of artifacts, the 'arytaines' (ladles) and polymyxoi lamps (lamps) are rare or unique. Also the findings were analyzes that contributed significantly to the interpretation of ceramics. The worship in caves are little known in Crete.
