Zakros - Kato Zakros Gorge

Within a few distance from the village of Zakros, starts the Gorge, which ends at the bay of Kato Zakros, almost near the Minoan Palace area.
This gorge is of outstanding beauty, with large caves in its walls.

In those caves were discovered tombs from the Minoan period, and finds of great archaeological importance. That is the reason why the caves are named "The Caves of Deads" and the gorge "The Gorge of Deads".

Because of its natural beauty and archaeological significance the gorge attracts numerous visitors every year.
