Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Make sure to read the information board at the start of the trail that leads to the cave. It was a beautiful walk along the edge of the cliff but make sure to wear decent shoes as it’s quite uneven. Such a tragic part of history so being in the cave feels quite eery. Bring a torch or use your phone torch and kind your head! The little church inside is a lovely memorial to those who perished here. Definitely worth a visit.

A must see in the area - steeped in an awful history but a true honour to those who died. Very unique and in a beautiful setting. A challenging path in places but the views are incredible. You need a torch or phone torch inside the cave - we also saw bats. Some tricky driving to get here.

If you are interested in history of Crete, this place is a must see. The path to the cave is in good condition, but bring good shoes and a flashlight for inside the cave. To see the Altar containing the bones of the victims was very moving and sad. Not a „fun place“ but interesting.

A great historical cave to visit. The 5 - 10 min walk to the cave is very beautiful. If you only imagine what happed there when the war was going on you get a strong feeling cause you can still see the black colour from the fire on the top of the cave. After the cave ride we went down to No Name for a coffee and a Beer and then went back to Sisi! Great day!

As it is said in comments that to find this cave is kinda hard but it is very worthy. There is no parking for cars or bikes (leave them on road in a safe place) and go up the hill with arrow showing “cave”. A lot of goats are around and they have bells so the walk to cave is very unique. The cave itself is amazing, it has a small chapel inside. Recommend this place 120%!!

It was a bit of a hike along an uneven path, to get to the entrance of the Cave.
The scenery from the path is stunning and we'll worth the hike.
When you get to the entrance of the cave, it is very low, dark and narrow.
(Some may not wish to go in). If you go, then take a torch, as you will definitely need one. (A mobile phone light is not sufficient.) There is a history of the cave explained at the entrance. Once you enter the cave, it is very dark, and the ground is uneven. But it is well worth the effort to go in and explore.

We could easily park the car near the cave entrance. Then you walked on a path to the cave. The events that used to take place in this cave impressed us, it was horrible what happened here. It is definitely worth going here. we were here during sunset so the view was astonishing.

Found on the road rising out of Milatos towards Kounali this is an excellent little cave. Parking is limited to a couple of by the road spots and its about a 300 metre walk from the road which is reasonably flat to the cave entrance. You need to take a torch and can then navigate your way through the caves to the little church inside and terrific opening but be careful, floors are natural. Its a free attraction and very natural.
