Crete: The Birthplace of Zeus

The Psychro Cave, the legendary birthplace of Zeus

Of course, the boys will tell you half the fun of this place was the mule ride up the mountain to the mouth of the cave:

But the rest of us (who approached on foot), welcomed the cave's dark coolness, a refreshing change from the hot, dry climb.

Overexposed photo, but can you see the tiny people
going down, down, down? That's where we
went to visit the cave bats and Zeus ...

So this was where Rhea safely hid Zeus from his father, Cronus, who had the unfortunate habit of devouring his children.
