Beschreibung    Deutsch  ·  English

A few kilometers from Palaiochora the village  Azigores is located, above which the cave of the 99 fathers can be found.


The legend tells, that 100 hermits came to the South of Crete, over Cyprus and Asia minor, and settled down in a number of caves. Their leader, Saint John of Egypt, one day decided to leave behinf his brothers and move north to Akrotiri and live there as an hermit.

But before John left the group,  they swore an oath all together: When any of them would die, all of them should do so. After John actually died after being accidentally shot by a hunter, said hunter began to search for the other 99 fathers in Azigores to bring them the news. But all of them had already passed before, on a single day ...

Inside the cave to the right there is an altar with an icon depicting the 99 fathers. 


The way leads from the main road to an unpaved, winding one. Just follow the road signs. The roads are passable, even if it may not seem so, with any car given an adapted speed. A cross above the cave shows the general direction. The last part of the way must be walked. You should consider wearing sturdy shoes. After a bit of climbing you will reach a plateau. From here three steel leathers (from 1933!) lead down into the actual cave.

Be careful. Down there it can be quite slippery. An obviously it will be dark!

The cache is outside the cave on the plateau at the roots of the smaller of the two fig trees. Have a lot of fun!

The path going up to the cave is really bad and a 4wheeler would have been the better choice as my van. But nevertheless you will have a fantastic scenic view a nicly placed cache. Thanks for that. Regards from Germany
