Aretoussa’s Cave

Descending 65 metres into the depths of a rocky hill in Kastella, visitors will find Aretoussa’s Cave.

The remains of a basic plumbing system indicate that during the prehistoric era, this place was used to store and supply water to the area.

The cave took its name from Aretoussa, the heroine of the Cretan tragic poem, Erotokritos.
