Cave and Minoan Cistern near Finikia

At the steps leading up to the Kira Panagia Church, about 80 m before entering its grounds, there is a cave entrance hidden in the rocks, 1.35 m wide and 1.7 m high. Behind the entrance is a corridor about 3 m long. The main chamber is about 20 m long and 15 m wide.

The walls are made of large stone blocks. The room may have once served as a tomb or a cistern. Narrow corridors lead to further chambers. Ceramics from Hellenistic and Roman times, as well as medieval and later times, have been found in them.
